Safari Dictionary?

When a word is highlighted in Safari, there is an option in the right click menu to look that word up in the dictionary. However when I click this it does nothing at all... What exactly should it do? Take me to an online dictionary? Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks, that explains it then, I moved my dictionary app to a sub folder of the aplications folder, I tried moving it back and it works but I really would like it to stay in its sub folder, its a lot neater and more organized. Any ideas how I might be able to set Safari to be able to recognise that its in another location?

Ok so it turns out I gave up sleeping, and decided to stay up to see If I could figure out your problem, So I searched around and I played with safari, I was unable to figure this out, hopefully somebody else on the forum will have an idea.

lol, I don't sleep anyway, I only get 3-4 hours a night and thats all I need for a fresh start. Anymore than that and I can't really sleep. 4:32am :dummy:

Its only a minor thing, and its my fault really for having such an obsessive file structure but it would be nice...

What you want to do is make an alias, which a shortcut for you switchers out there.

Control-click on the app, select Make Alias.

I've got a tip for you, for using the dictionary app. Hold down command + ctrl + d (once you press d, it's okay to let go of d, while still holding down command + ctrl), then hover the cursor over a word or move the cursor along the sentence to look up words on the fly.
