Great app. It would be nice if it explained what the various dictionaries it displays are for, where they are and a list which programs use them.

Just a couple of suggestions...

• Add your website URL to the "About" drop down.
• Add a YouTube demonstration of using the application

Finally a question... can your app be enhanced to help us add other dictionaries databases of words that are currently standalone applications like Merriam-Webster and American Heritage?

Thanks for the application!!!!

It works for me just fine. There is a trick to it though - you have to launch it from your boot drive for it to find your Mac and local dictionaries.

Really no frills - not even UNICODE support - sad to say so but: useless...

Ask and you shall receive. (But you could have been nicer.) UTF-8 is now fully supported in 1.0.1.

Dictionary Editor does not work for me. I have 'en' file with a number of learned words but opening DE shows nothing. Can't figure out how to get it to recognize the 'en'.

Contacted developer and he found the problem, fixed it and posted the updated version to their website.

Fast support and a pleasure to work with these folks.
