    Hi,
    Can anyone confirm this for me.

    Running Lion 10.7, Pages 4.1. (upgrade from SL)

    Select a word in your page document, ctrl click, select writing tools, select Look up in dictionary = doesn't work!

    Thanks
    Simon.

    It works for me with a new pages document with the word frog in a clean install. Did you upgrade or used a clean install?

    Part solution

    Hello,

    Double- tapping with three fingers (on a trackpad if activated in sys prefs, mouse does not have the option) does work in Pages.

    Anyway, hope this gets a full fix soon.

    Best regards,
    sth
