When I right-click/ctrl-click on selected text in OS X applications today, it provides me with the menu options to:
* Look Up in Dictionary
* Search in Spotlight
* Search in Google

I find these three features, in particular English Dictionary lookup, extremely useful.

In today's Accordance menu, these options don't exist. I understand why, but I would love to see you pull them in or their equivalents.

Thanks,

Mike

They appear in my Accordance menu, when I have a word selected in the text. We just haven't added them to our already full right-click menu.

In the meantime, you may also be able to configure the Services menu (assuming you have snow leopard), complete with shortcuts, to do some of this for you.

Great idea. Seems that search with Google already had a keyboard shortcut too.

Thanks,

Mike
