I want to look up a selected word using a third-party dictionary app “DIctionaries”.
- Select a word (copy)
- Launch the “Dictionaries” app
- Search (paste the word and press Enter key)
- Add to Bookmark (if possible)
I wonder how to realize it.
It would be greatly appreciated if someone could make this Snippet.
Hi @aufsteigender, welcome. Could you post a link to the app?
I know of https://dictionaries.io/ but this appears to be a different app to the one in the screenshot.
Edit: I found it, on the App Store of course (https://apps.apple.com/app/dictionaries/id1380563956)
OK, I haven’t actually tested it properly (those dictionaries aren’t cheap!!) but the app installs a macOS Service called “Look Up in Dictionaries” so it should be straightforward:
service name: Look Up in Dictionaries
I haven’t realized it before. Thank you ever so much!
