Dictionary/Thesaurus question

Gary, is it possible to highlight a word in a document and open the dictionary with a keyboard command, placing the word in the search field?

Right now, the only way I know to do it is to highlight and copy the word, click to open the dictionary icon in the dock, then paste the word into the search field.

Thanks!

    Absolutely. Just highlight the word and Ctrl+Click (or Right click) and select “Look up in Dictionary”
