10.5: Change the dictionary used for Spotlight definitions
Authored by: auco on May 08, '09 03:01:04PM

I'm using Quicksilver to quickly access Dictionary.app

It's very easy to configure QS to provide a quick & comfortable shortcut:

Open Quicksilver's Preferences:
"Plugins"-Tab:
- Make sure "Dictionary Module" is installed
"Preferences"-Tab:
- Command: Spacebar behavior: Select "Switch to Text Mode"
- Actions: Text: Move "Look Up in Dictionary" to the top (usually the topmost entry is "QSLargeTypeAction"
Done!

Now launch QS (ctrl+SPACE). Press SPACE again to switch to TextMode and enter the word. Type return and voià!

:)
