Over the past few days, I found myself constantly adding LiveDictionary to Apps here and there. Besides the obvious candidate,
Mail.app, I found LiveDictionary also working in other apps.
More precisely, the following Apps I use support LiveDictionary to the extent that it becomes useful:
- Safari* Mail.app* iChat* ecto (ex. Kung-Log)* NetNewsWire* Curio* PulpFiction* UniLingua
Update: LiveDictionary loads and works in PulpFiction as well. Cool!
Update: I added UniLingua (A vocabulary learning software) to the list – because I can :)
In order to load LiveDictionary in these apps, you will have to modify the
Info.plist of the
LiveDictInputManagerLoader.bundle which is found in the
LiveDictInputManager.inputManager that is located in
The following snippet of code lists the
LiveDictLoadableAppIDs key that you will need to use.
<key>LiveDictLoadableAppIDs</key><array> <string>com.apple.iChat</string> <string>com.zengobi.curio</string> <string>com.apple.Safari</string> <string>com.apple.mail</string> <string>kungfoo.tv.ecto</string> <string>com.ranchero.NetNewsWire</string> <string>com.milvich.michael.MenuSpell</string> <string>com.freshsqueeze.PulpFiction</string> <string>com.harderware.UniLingua</string></array>
If you know other Apps that will work with LiveDictionary enabled, post them in the comments.
