    Dictionary in os x10.4.11
    Friends:

    I recently moved "everything" from my older macbook to a used PowerBook G4 and both run 10.4.11.

    On the macbook I could put the cursor on any word, tap the touch pad with two fingers and up would pop a very small Oxford dictionary window, but this no longer works.

    If I use Cntl + apple + D the dictionary does pop up but I would like to return to the easier method.

    Can anyone get help me with this?


    Thanks,
    Mark

    ?? Ctrl, Apple and D just reveals my hidden dock!

    I cannot explain this as on my machine when I hold down Control + Apple and then push "D" I get the Websters Dictionary.
