10.4: Default to the Thesaurus for Dictionary lookups Apps
Tiger only hintIf, like me, you use the Dictionary mainly for the Thesaurus, you can change it so in the panel lookup it defaults to the Thesaurus instead of the Dictionary.

To do this, launch the Dictionary application, go into the Preferences, and change the order of the dictionaries so the Thesuarus is first. At the same time, as Rob noted in another hint, you can change the behaviour of the context menu to show the Dictionary panel instead of launch the Dictionary application -- which I find makes for a more friendly user experience.
