    Thats True but if you put your cursor over any word and type the command above you will get the Dictionary function just mouse over any word Then click on the More button and Hey Presto!!

    Sorry for not getting hold of your problem at the right end but maybe one or both of these would be a starting point

    You'll find them
    under your HD Library folder don't trash them at first just move them to the Desktop
    Have you tried a re-boot that helps now and again.. If not then maybe some one else can help you

    hi

    yes it was naughty and rude, but he just wasn't any help until i grabbed his attention. anyway it would fit you better if you concentrated on helping problem solve rather than comment on others manners just for the sake of it ( now that's rude ) ()

    kind regards
