Hi from Chiangmai

I find the built in Dictionary a quite useful offline app.

It used to be fine, now when I enter a word I've got a 50/50 chance of an answer.

How could I reload this app. Where would I find it without reloading OSX?


thanx John

Dictionary is an application in the Application Folder.

Download a utility such as Pacifist, link below, trash Dictionary and load new version from the Leopard install DVD:-
