    Hey there, I have been googling like mad to find out how to change the default dictionary on my kindle for ipad app from English to French. I actually bought the Kindle French dictionary, but now find it entirely useless as I cannot use it in text reading mode!

    Is there any way that I can change the default dictionary in the Kindle for iPad to the French dictionary? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Kind Regards,
    mmper

    Try this:


    1. If you are not already on the Home screen, press the "Home" button.
    2. Press the "Menu" button.
    3. Move the 5-way controller to underline "Settings" and press to select.
    4. Press the "Menu" button.
    5. Move the 5-way to underline "Change Primary Dictionary" and press to select.
    6. Move the 5-way to underline the dictionary you want to use and press to select.
    This is from the Kindle Help section "Using the built-in dictionary"

    hmm

    See, I have read this already and was under the impression that this worked only for an actual kindle (as in the ereader) not the kindle app for Ipad...Hence the question posted here...is this correct? or not?

    Sorry, I was thinking you also had a Kindle. My thought was that if you changed it there, it would also change on the iPad, as you are changing your profile on Amazon and the iPad would pickup on that change. Probably wouldn't.:(
