    Anyone understand why the three-finger tap gesture doesn't work in the Preview App? The gesture works in Mail, Safari, and iChat as far as I know....

    Same issue. As far as I remember, it used to work in Beta, but now it's gone. I'm reading a technical PDF right now and it would be very useful. Works fine in Mail, Textedit and other apps where it's less needed though...

    I had no idea it was not working until you pointed it out.

    Too bad, since I do most of my reading in Preview and so definition look-up there would be most useful. Maybe in the future. We can only hope.

    I don't think it's supposed to work with PDFs. Lookup doesn't work in Snow Leopard either.

    I'm not overly surprised it doesn't work PDFs are more of an image of text than a text document
