    This is incredibly odd, but I went to work on a resume and couldn't locate the dictionary that comes with the Mac originally. I did a search in the Library for it but the only thing that came up was a downloaded icon that replaced the original.

    Is there anyway to download this? Google results returned nothing of relevance.

    Have you checked the Applications folder and not the Library? That's where the Dictionary application is kept on my Mac.

    B'more or Less
    Or you can also type Dictionary into Spotlight Search and hit the Return key to open it.

    Sorry to bother you again, but I've tried both options and it's nowhere to be found. I highlighted a word in Pages and hit the "Look up in Dictionary & Thesaurus" selection and it yielded nothing. This is incredibly annoying, because I would never deliberately delete something like that, nor have I changed any of my applications recently.

    Apologies for the double post, but any other ideas from any of you guys/girls?
