Define Word - A Better Dictionary

Recommended Posts

I wanted a slightly better dictionary for lookups. In particular, I wanted well formatted previews of the entries without having to open the Dictionary app.

You can choose from all available dictionaries that are installed on your system, define the fallback dictionaries for your lookups, set the font size of the previews, or manually select a dictionary to use. The previews reflect the global appearance, i.e. they have a dark mode! The workflow also includes a preset for looking up synonyms of a word and a convenient keyboard shortcut for quick lookups.

Download from Github

shift or cmd+Y to preview the dictionary entry.
cmd+C to copy the plain text of the dictionary entry to the clipboard.
cmd+L to view the plain text as large type.






Pick the preferred dictionary
