Maybe I misunderstood the 1.4.1 enhancements, but is there a way to directly access the dictionary in NC 1.4.1 without doing it through context in a book or PDF? I.e., be able to enter in an arbitrary word?
You still have to access the dictionary through a book or PDF, by holding your finger on a word unitl the menu bar pops up, then you can select "look up". From there you can type any word you want into the dictionary. But there is no way to access the dictionary other than through a book or PDF.
