Since last update v5.0.7 it said the dictionary location must change to a new one. I copied the while dictionary folder to that specific path but failed to reindex. It always show invalid file. My old dictionaries are *.idx is it not suppport this files anymore? Also I have no URL to download those ones in this app information auch as Stardict jp-en, etc. Now it can use only included 2 dictionaries and Wikipedia.

Due to changes in the storage policy of the Android operating system, the location of dictionary data has been changed to /Android/media/com.socialnmobile.colordict/dictdata. Try to move dictionary data to that folder.

Has been the best dictionary for me for a long time until recently when "Search error in English wordnet" pops up for some words. I have un-installed and re - installed to no effect. Really frustrating especially since I use it in my moonreader app to read my ebooks. Please fix the issue.
