Re: Add support for look up in Dictionary, Leopard OSX
i am using Macsword 1.9.7 it's great. well improved from previous version.

it would be very helpful if you can activate/add a feature to look up a highlighted word in built in Dictionary of Leopard OSX. Same thing you can do in Safary, by right clicking.

when i highlight a word and right click on it, i can see option look up in Dictionary, but it's grayed out right now.

You really mean the OS X dictionary?

You need to select a word first, if you then do right-click the options should be available.
However they only search in SWORD dictionaries modules not in the OS X dictionary.
But this can be added quite easily.
