  • Very Fast
  • Live results
  • Spell checking
  • Automatic update checks.
Secrets
  • ⇧+Enter to paste the selected word in the frontmost application.
  • ⌃+Enter to pass the exact query to Dictionary.app

Please try it and let me know what you think :D

Very nice. Works great. Super fast.

One enhancement would be around spelling fixes. If I type something that is spelled incorrectly, I do see that the action figures that out and shows the correct spelling, but that is hard to distinguish in the results. Perhaps if the result does not start with the same string as the input you could have a different icon or some other visual indication

that way I know to go to the line item and ⌘C to get the correct spelling

prenagha Thanks.

Do you mean something like this?

so when the word is not found in any dictionary highlight the first match icon and fade the last item (which is the typed word)

also think I should use a suggestion script for this‌, hmmmm

I love the idea behind this action. However, it does not seem to work for me; auto-correction works, but I'm not getting any dictionary results as shown in the screenshot. Any ideas?

I'm on 10.9.5 with Launchbar 6.1.3

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi there,
Have you taken down your repository? I'd love to try out this action, but it looks like your GitHub account no longer has anything on it.
