To avoid this you can arrange your dictionaries in to shelves, pretty much in the same way as you would organize books in a book case, for example, you could have a shelf for English dictionaries, one for Spanish, and a third one for Japanese. The only difference is that you can place the same dictionary in to several shelves at the same time. When you create two or more shelves, Babbletower places two buttons next to the row of dictionary tabs, that let you switch from one shelf to the next (see screen shot).
To arrange dictionaries in a shelf, or to create, remove and arrange shelves, tap and hold any of the dictionary tabs. This brings up a menu that allows you to open the appropriate setup screens. They are explained in the remainder of this section.
To apply your changes and return to the dictionary screen, press the OK button. To discard your changes, press the X button.
The list at the bottom shows all available dictionaries that are not yet in the selected shelf, sorted alphabetically. To add a dictionary, first select the dictionary in the shelf after which you would like to add the new dictionary, then select the new dictionary in the list below. Note: The dictionary should be added as soon as you select it. Depending on your Java runtime however, this may not work. Use the + button in this case.
To apply your changes and return to the dictionary screen, press the OK button. To discard your changes, press the X button. Note that selecting a different shelf discards any changes you may have made so far.
