I don’t know Greek or Hebrew. When I highlight a word, what I want is an encyclopedia definition, not the Hebrew/Greek usage. I notice when I switch to airplane mode, I achieve this. Logos will pull up my AYBD for a term. But this only works in airplane mode. Is there a way to make this work when not in airplane mode too? Logos would be infinitely more useful for myself and probably many others.

I’m going to bump this each month. Wanted this feature for years and I think it’s silly FL has not implemented it yet.

I guess I will see a few bumps and I will be supporting each one (morally of course).

Mike Binks:

This looks more ethical, than moral. Though, indeed an impact on morale. But, since nothing is ever FL's fault (and certainly not one to judge, just this one time), maybe the code was written on an airplane flight.

FL always amazes me ... what next?! Their server must be a spagetti of bad logic (but not judging, of course).

Go, Matt, go! Seriously.

But it’s not April yet? Surprise

Out of curiosity: it pulls up AYBD? I thought it only pulled up the installed iOS dictionary.

I just tried it and I get a different result than I remembered... but not the same as you. I get various resources pulled up.

I get AYBD. I don’t know why. At least it’s better than the IOS oxford.

I also want to make sure my first post is CRYSTAL clear for any FL employees reading it. I DO NOT want an iOS oxford dictionary. I want one of my purchased dictionaries to appear. Maybe ABD or ISBE, etc. Having the internal oxford appear is worthless in this context.
