Re: Add support for look up in Dictionary, Leopard OSX
How about a Dictionary Window so that when you highlight a word or Morph Code the appropriate information shows up in a the window, so that you don't have to go through the extra step of right-clicking and opening in another tab...

That's already the case in the preview panel.

Are you referring to the Tool Tip type pop-up when highlighting a code? Or is there some other Panel I can turn on to allow for single-clicking on a code?

There is a HUD style "Preview panel" which you can open. on left-click it shows the Strong's, Morphs, Cross-Refs and other type of information of links.
Is this what you are looking for?

It would just be nice to have dictionaries available in the same window like the Commentaries...
That might come at some point.

Has anyone else ever requested this? Or am I the only one so far?

I'm not aware of anyone requesting this.
Actually I doubt it really is so useful. The space that would be available for such a dictionary lookup would be very small while switching a tab is not such a great issue I suppose.
