Unhappy Does your kobo allow you to highlight text/use dictoinary in .mobi books?

Just curious if it's just me.

I have another thread discussing the issue I have with formatting, the .mobi's are formatted nicely whereas the .epub are just one size text. The problem is I can't highlight text or use the dictionary with any .mobi files.

Anyone know why?

I use a kobo aura h20 edition 2

Davidfor already answered that in your other thread:

Overall, you are better to use an EPUB version if you have it, or convert to EPUB or KEPUB.
