    Advice. To make the pop-up translation function more convenient, check the option when I point to a word while holding down this button and choose a key from the dropdown list. Now to see the pop-up translation window, you have to place the pointer over a word while holding the selected key.

Note. Pop-up translation may not work with some applications (such as Adobe® Acrobat® Reader).

Make sure there is at least one locally installed dictionary on the selected bookshelf

The pop-up window shows the translation only from the first local dictionary on the bookshelf.
