On my previous beloved paperwhite, when looking for the definition of a word, the definition from the default dictionary of course took priority; but if the word is not found in the default dictionary, the definition from an alternative dictionary would be displayed automatically. Rarely did my paperwhite show me “no definition is found”.
Then I traded in the paperwhite for my current kindle oasis, which says “no definition is found” a LOT. I had to switch to another dictionary manually, and discover that, in fact, a definition could be found, just in a dictionary other than my current default dictionary. It’s really a pain to use as compared to the paperwhite.
Could someone tell me why this is happening? Was it due to a software update? Can I get this function back? Thanks in advance.
my newest model Paperwhite (same OS as the Oasis, I believe), it works the same way where I have to switch dictionaries. The older Kindles had the ability to set multiple dictionaries as the default for some languages. It's not something you can get back as it isn't there on more recent Kindles. You can email Amazon at firstname.lastname@example.org and suggest that they add it to the current OS.
