Dictionary window shows every other page.

I haven't seen a report of this. I'm running the latest firmware (3.3.0) on my Aura HD. When the dictionary window pops up, it will only show odd numbered pages. For example, if the definition says page 1 of 4 at the bottom of the pop-up window, when I flip the page it goes to 3 of 4. If I flip again it goes back to page 1, skipping pages 2 and 4. If the definition says page 1 of 2, it will only show page 1. I need to show the definition in full screen mode to see the whole thing.

Are others having a similar problem, and if so, is there a fix?

Thanks.

Try just tapping on the dictionary popup screen rather than swiping your fingers to go to next dictionary page.

Thanks, I tried that but it doesn't work. For example, I looked up the word "relativity" in a book I'm reading because I knew it would have several sub-definitions. The pop-up opened and noted I was on page 1 of 3. Tapping or double tapping did nothing. Swiping took me to page 3 of 3.

I've never had this problem with the dictionary, but occasionally if there is some dirt blocking the IR sensors then a single long swipe gets interpreted as two short swipes, which could make it turn two pages at once. Cleaning the screen and edge of the bezel always fixes it for me.

Did you try swiping in the other direction?

I just tried this with my Aura HD, and I was able to tap to go to page 2 of the definition with no problem. I know that you've probably already tried this, but maybe a reboot could help?

I've seen this swiping behavior on Aura HD with firmware 3.3.0 and 3.3.1 and on Glo with 3.3.0 (3.3.1 not tested). I haven't seen this behavior with 3.4.1 on either Glo (as discussed in the developer's corner) or Aura HD (new test result).
