Dictionary Not Working Fast

Jul 25, 2010

I make constant use of the built in dictionary.I am reading quite a long book (The Shadow of the Wind)' and now that I am on page 270 out of aprox. 600, everytime I double tap a word to access its definition, it takes around 5 seconds for the dictionary book to show up. The weird thing is that it doesnt happen when I perform the same action on the first 100 pages of the book, for example - it is really way snappier then.Is it a bug or can I do something about it?

I've noticed that the dictionary in iBooks is not working, and this problem persists from Beta 1. Is there any specific reason why it has not been addressed yet, except for the fact that this is only a beta?

Does 's Ebook Include A Dictionary - Reader Dictionary Feature

Apr 5, 2010

I want to know if the book reader feature in iPad has a dictionary. In other words, can I underline a word in a book and have it bring up its definition. If yes, can you provide a link to an official description that describes this feature? Also, if yes, is it included or an app?I've been doing a lot of browsing and have only found one iffy claim that it has a dict. The absence of touting this feature makes me wonder.Ideally I'd like to hear from someone that has used both a Kindle and the iPad's reader dictionary feature.

Dictionary Available In Certain Applications?

Apr 7, 2010

I've noticed when typing an email when a word is underlined in red you can tap on it and then a "replace" button appears that offers the
correct spelling. However when reading email only the option to copy appears. Yet in Pages and iBooks you can tap a word and get the
dictionary. Is Dictonary only available in certain apps at certain times?

How To Add Word In Its Dictionary

Oct 5, 2011

My IPad 2 keeps autocorrecting the spelling of my name incorrectly and a few times I have missed it and created all sorts of confusion (what it is being changed to is nowhere near my real name). Does any know how I can either add my correct name spelling to the dictionary so I doesn't try to auto correct, or to address this another way as it's really frustrating.

Removing A Word From Dictionary

May 11, 2011

When I try to type my name in most documents, it is auto corrected to "Mike Ethan" this is not close to my name and it is annoying to have to remove the autocorrection.. I found the instructions for removing a word from the dictionary but the instructions are incorrect as there is no field in the general page of Setting/keyboard corresponding to "modify dictionary".

Dictionary Feature Does Not Work?

Apr 22, 2012

However, the user guide states that to see a definition, just tap the word. I had tapped, double tapped, tapped and held, etc, but no definition pops up in any word I have tried. This is the same in email, reading a Kindle book, reading an iBook book.
