    How do I change the language of the dictionary widget in Dashboard? It has always been the Oxford Dictionary for me, even when running a non-english system, but this seems to have changed with macOS Sierra as it now using my native language dictionary, which I don't need.

    I've downloaded several english language dictionaries in the Dictionary.app and put them at the top of the list, but that does not seem to affect the language of the dictionary widget. Funny though, it seems to have affected the used dictionary for three finger look up using the Force Touch trackpad.

    Apparently this was fixed in 10.12.1, as I can now change between different dictionaries, based on what I've set in the Dictionary app.
