I’m wondering if it’s possible to implement a reader button in 3.x that enables/disables binomial and multi-character phrase detection. The situation I’m dealing with is reading ancient texts. I’ll be looking up words with SCM, and then there will be a binomial and the dictionary will switch to a modern one, and I’ll need to unselect the binomial and switch the dictionary back. My current solution is to go to Manage Dictionaries (saved to my favorites) and turn off the modern dictionaries for the duration of the session, but that’s a bit of a pain.
I think you said that having different dictionary presets in reader will be part of 4.0, but if there was a binomial recognition on/off button that would be a simple way to solve the problem that maybe could be implemented in 3.x (actually I have no idea how hard it would be to implement, so that’s just speculation). And actually, that might work better than dictionary presets in reader, because while I don’t want my dictionary automatically switched, sometimes I do want to check if characters that I encounter work as a binomial or phrase in modern Chinese. With a binomial on/off button I could do that by hitting the button on.
