Dictionary lookups


So I was using the nifty three finger double tap look up method (I’m sure that there is a less wordy name for this feature, but it escapes me at the moment…) and then the look up wouldn’t dismiss, and then Scrivener crashed. It’s happened twice now. I reinstalled the application and that didn’t fix the issue. Not sure what is going on.

This is what I see before the app crashes:

Has anyone seen this behavior?


Hi Josh,

A few users have reported this behaviour, but so far I have been unable to reproduce it. I’ve also seen reports of it happening in other applications, so I think this may well be a Lion bug. However, if you can find an instance where this always happens, I’d be grateful if you could let me know - if I can reproduce it myself, I can either confirm it’s a Lion bug and report it to Apple or look for a workaround.

Thanks and all the best,
