    So, did Apple really create this great new Force Touch technology, and then not implement it into their own word processor?!

    Seriously - force touching a word in Safari brings up a definition. But in Pages - nothing. I have to double-click to select the word, then secondary-click to define. What the hell?

    Am I missing a setting or something? Anyone else got this working? Or do I wait for an update to Pages?

    You wait for an update. Seriously, force touch is brand new. I bet we see more uses of it in OS X 10.11 this summer.

    Alrighty then. I just figured it'd work with Apple's primary productivity apps right out of the gate. Oh well!

    Thanks for the input.

    It's been months and force touch still doesn't do anything in Pages.

    I've still yet to find a SINGLE actual real world use with the Force Touch thing. I would have liked to see it user configurable as I find it would be really nice to be able to use it as an extra button or bind it so some kind of command. For example, open a new tab in Chrome or launch System Monitor etc.

    I've been using El Capitan since its first Developer Seed and still have not found a use.

    Force touch sux. it's meaningless. moreover, i'm generally not thrilled with the trackpad. people say it's more accurate. i wholeheartedly disagree.
