This example is representative of a FREQUENT FRUSTRATION while using the right-click menu:

I right click a word, like "explicated" and make sure "Selection" is selected. In the "Selection" section, I go down to the "Look up" section and see that there are no results. This is really frustrating, because I know if I could just manually modify my search term to "explicate" that I would get results from various dictionaries. I did a cursory review of the stand-alone "Look up" tools, and none seem to provide this functionality.

PLEASE make the selected term editable in the right-click menu. This happens so often, and it is really frustrating.

Note that you can either hold down the Alt key while selecting or change your Text Selection option in the Program Settings to "Character". Either of these will enable you to select only part of a word. This will let your selection section operate on just the part of the word you are interested in.

Obviously this doesn't help in all situations. I'd recommend creating a suggestion on the feedback website.
