    When I look up a word in Leopard's dictionary widget, I only get sense #1 of the word. For example, looking up "lie" in the widget gives me only definitions pertaining to lying down; if I look it up in the dictionary application, I get sense #1 AND sense #2 (pertaining to telling a mistruth).

    This was not an issue with Tiger. Is there a fix for this?

    Side note -- Cmd^D now pretends not to work if you hover over a word that isn't in the dictionary. Am I the only one who finds this very annoying (in Tiger the dictionary would come up and say "No entries found").

    I am trying to find an answer to this question to no avail. The widget dictionary only list up the 1st one for the multiple definitions. If it lists up the noun and I am looking for the definition of the verb for the same spelling, I had to add "-ed" or something to get to the 2nd definition. :mad:
