No problems here but a little tip for multiple devices. You just copy the colordict folder over to your second device then install ColorDict when it opens it will index every dictionary in that folder. You then just set up the order you like each dictionary to display and then of course set it up as default in Moon+

same here, and when I googled it I got the strong impression that the rest of the world now thinks it is an obsolete approach.

works though, as you say - I think my setup brings up both the colordict definition and anything in wikipedia, though don't ask my how I configured that !
what I'd like to have is the way that bookari works, in that you can choose defaults from a variety of online lookups and as I read only on connected tablets, that would suit me better than an onboard dictionary

I don't get the problem. You highlight a word choose dict. From the menu and the definition pops up. If you have more than one dictionary enabled you can scroll to the bottom. Easy peasy.

The hassle is installing colordict, not using it.
You have to install the app, go find and eparately install data, delete the thing you just installed..
I agree that it is easy to use, once jnstalled,but finding a matched set of components in the play store is less so.
And it lacks the extensive vocabulary of on line lookup dictionaries, unless I am missing some extended data install option

I don't use the Playstore for dictionaries. Colordict supports stardict format so I use that which gives me plenty of options.

Ok so where do you download the stardict files please, and how do you apply them, if not via an app store ?
I don't like having to allow and trust unknown sources

PS - I google stardict & find this

does not look attractive.

"The original StarDict project has recently been removed from SourceForge due to copyright infringement reports. Most of the files were lost with the demise of the project. The project has re-emerged here since then, though the legal issues may never have been resolved.

StarDict hasn't seen any active development for many years, while the world around hasn't stood still...

Hi,

I tried using the reflow option on moon+ reader and it turns a few special characters such as " and ? into boxes. Does anybody know how to fix this issue? Like do I need to download a certain font or something... please let me know.

Thanks!
