Follow Up: Foregoing my rant of more reasons to hate Sierra...

Previously, on MRF...

I detailed how, when checking a definition of a word, I'd highlight it, then right click and select Look up 'compliance' for example, and get a Wikipedia result instead of the expected dictionary definition as I got in Mavs.

However, in this incarnation of Sierra, no joy.

'Dictionary' was not among the options listed at the bottom of the Look Up popup.

Revisiting this just now, I decided to Cmd -Shift - A > Dictionary and opened it.

Dictionary responded with something like 'Dictionary needs to download some stuff'.

I had the option of selecting Dictionary, Wikipedia, Apple Dictionary, blah blah. So I chose All.

And wouldntcha know... Now I have Dictionary as the default, and I like it.

I've never had to do this before and Dictionary was always the default.

I had another install of Sierra on my MB, and Dictionary was there with no help from me.

Anyway... case closed.

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Then I'll have to rethink my position vis a vis hatin' on Sierra.

I've upgraded OS over OS over OS so, in fairness, it may be NnP time.

I lose track. I just upgrade and weakly accept whatever it brings or takes away. #agingmacuser
