    How do I get rid of these "look up" and "search with google" options when in other applications? They ****ing suck; if I want to look up something I would open chrome and search it.


    I already went to settings - keyboard and unchecked all of the boxes but some (annoying) options are still there. The only options I want are cut, copy, and paste.

    I'm sick of seeing them. Especially when copy and pasting login information. I don't want to search google for my login information.




    Thanks for any and all help; I would be lost without you guys.

    Love,

    Ring

    I have them everywhere where I'm able to type text. It's ridiculous.

    it is built in to OS X and there is no way to get rid of them.

    that's a bummer and arguably a fatal security flaw

    I don't have those in Word, in Chrome they aren't at the top, in Textmate they don't appear at all, in Eclipse neither.
    The only apps I can find that have it is Mail, iCal and notes.

    It is built into OSX and supposed to be default but most non Apple Apps don't give a damn.
