Awesome! Looking forward to it.
@uni421 - we've been unable to reproduce this issue; are you still seeing it on iOS 10.1?
problem with search results with c&t biz dictionary [on both ipad and iphone, latest pleco and ios]: cannot search (retrieve) the text present in definitions. eg "legal action" is a definition (actually, formatted as a sub entry) belonging to the "legal" (headword) entry. however, searching for "legal action" with either search mode E or (E) will not find "legal action" in this dictionary. it _will_ find "legal action" as definition text with (E) in _other_ dictionaries (actually, in all of them, it would seem, in which the term occurs). likewise, the translation itself that c&t offers for "legal action" 诉讼 is not found (retrieved from) the c&t dictionary when searching for 诉讼 in C mode. questions: is this intended behavior for c&t biz? does it happen with other dictionaries? is there any present or upcoming solution? thanks. ps. if the issue is due to parsing of (maybe spurious) formatting characters (in the mentioned case, eg inserted between "legal" and "action") in the definition text, maybe you could offer a search modality (X) with which search is done on a semi flattened version of a dictionary; only conserving entry/headword delimiters.
That's intended behavior for all E-C dictionaries, actually. If you go into Manage Dictionary Groups / English and turn off the "Full-text search only" option under "Full-text, Eng dicts," that will add E-C dictionaries as another icon (EE) you can search.
