ok...i recently did a lot of backing up & restoring...& also did the 10.5.5 upgrade yesterday...
i was just looking through the dictionary for some word meanings when i noticed something strange (or maybe i was hallucinating before)

am i mistaken or were we not able to click on other words in the dictionary meanings/explanations & get their meanings

i recall having links to click on & directly go to meanings of other words used in the explanations...i tend to mix up things but im pretty certain ive used this feature & found it useful...

btw...if im not wrong...is there ay place where his can be turned on & off...maybe its off & i need to turn it on.

i know this sounds stange but ive been a little overloaded with work & things so im not clear in the head...i cant believe im not sure whether this was a feature that was actually there or not!

Right click on a word and choose "Look up in Dictionary".

ok...question for both...are there links for words that have meanings you can look up...or is it only right click & look up in dictionary...because i know the right click thing works.... i tried it...
but im pretty certain that there were blue links for word you can click on...

When I hover over the words in bold it turns into a blue, underlined link.

I'm on 10.5.5, but I have no idea how you can fix this one... Could you reinstall the dictionary app somehow? Copy it from someone else.

hmm...if all else fails ill try that....its so weird...im pretty sure i dint make any changes that could have done this...
either way it doesn't seem like an option...otherwise i would have been able to turn it back on...
