3.0 for Mac: Force Touch for Word Lookup

Please, L&L, can you bring force touch word lookup to Scrivener for the Mac, preferably in the same way it works in native Apple apps. That implementation is fast and easy: you just move the cursor to a word and force-touch-press the trackpad, resulting in an instant pop-up with the definition. The word does not have to be selected! It works in Safari, Notes, most native Apple apps.

When I’m working in Scrivener, I constantly need to look up words. It would be really helpful if it was as easy as it is in Safari. My understanding is that this feature was delayed because it requires 64-bit architecture. I hope the feature is still on your roadmap for 3.0.


Yes, that’s exactly the problem, and yes the next version will be 64-bit.
