    hello everyone...

    I'm trying to work on a spanish paper, and my translate widget all of a sudden decided to corrupt. I've been searching the web for an hour and I've got the biggest headache. I can't find anything. I've tried restarting, and I've trashed the plist files com.apple.dashboard.plist and com.apple.dashboard.client.plist. neither have done a damn thing for my widget. does anyone know what to do? gah!!

    Do you have this problem?

    If so, you're deleting the wrong plist file... you want this one:

    widget-com.apple.widget.translation.plist

    The widgets have their own prefs files -- the ones you're trying to delete handle Dashboard's overall behavior, not any aspects of individual widgets.
