Looks like development on this is dead and it's never worked for me. Recommend Dictionary Editor 1.3.0 instead. http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/28189/dictionary-editor

The listed Developer Website is non-existant as of 20101223. I can't see any correspondence or updates since August 2008 so I am wondering if the developer is still around.

Nice, but why not edit the basic way (clicking the selected text the typing).

Fantastic - one last thing it needs to make it 'perfect': sort the list contents alphabetically (as an option, of course - it's still useful to go straight to the last word you entered if it was duff). That'd make my heart go ping...

This doesn't work on PPC. Though the listing says it does, I get an error stating that it does not work on PowerPC Macs.
