Hi
Thank you for the great app.
I've been using this almost everyday for more than 5years.

Could you tell me whethear it's possible to link the word to interal dictiorary app in my iphone?
That is, when I want to know further information of the word I'm learning,
Is there any way to jump to the correspond section in internal dictionary?

Hi Akira,

Wow, great!

Are you using iOS? If so, try the following:
Global Options > Control > Advanced > Hold to Zoom > On
Then in study screen, long-press text to switch to interactive mode, long-press a word, release, and you should get an iOS popup menu with "Look Up" as option.

Android? What dictionary?

Hi Ernie.
Thank you for your instruction
It worked!!

I use iOS by the way,
Dictionaries I use are the default internal dictionary and another paid dictionary.
Using "Hold To Zoom" option works well enough though, if possible can I look up words in the paid one?
The developer offers URL scheme as below, so I was wondering if it may work.

mkg5:///search?text=

Try putting that in the "Extra Info" column/field (you can add in card edit screen) and then in the study screen, tap bottom-center button then "More card info". Does the app open?

Thank you!!
It opened

So Does it mean if I edit the original excel file and put "mkg5:///search?text=" in each cell, will I be able to open the paid dictionary?

Yes, I think so. Put it in the "Extra Info" column. You probably will want to make it a formula, so the search text is added to the end. Something like:
="mkg5:///search?text=" & A2
