Is It Possible To Point Scrivener to a Different Thesaurus?

I saw this question elsewhere on the forum, but it was not answered.

I have found the thesaurus at consistently lacking, and am wondering if there is a setting I can change to enable me to point Scrivener to a different thesaurus URL.

I have looked around, but cannot find a setting to either change the URL, or to download a different thesaurus (if that is even possible) - am I missing something?” is hard-coded into the Scrivener executable and I also have not found any reference to Thesaurus in any configuration file.

Why not link to several thesaurus sites bookmark file and leave open as a window and can refer when needed

AutoHotKey could give you this, in any number of ways.

Thanks very much, Bclarke.

That is good to know, and disappointing that it apparently cannot be changed (by users).

Thanks, GoalieDad, that is one idea, but I think if I do not go the AutoHotKey route that Mad_Girl_Disease suggests elsewhere in this thread, I will probably just create folder containing various Thesaurus sites in the Chrome Bookmarks bar.

Thanks, Mad_Girl_Disease,
I have never used AutoHotKey, so will take a look at it.

If I decide it is unsuitable, I will probably just create a folder containing various Thesaurus sites in my Chrome Bookmarks bar.

Thanks again.
