Moreover, most keystrokes, such as arrow navigation or page down, which might be able to help this situation, are not accepted by the applet (it doesn't take the focus?).
The window must be resizable, the lookup-word font smaller, less space under the title, and a vastly better scrolling interface is needed. The only way to use it right now is to try to highlight everything in the window, and then paste it into another application to read it! There also needs to be SOME way to make the window go away other than mouse-clicking on the dictionary icon in the panel. I'm using the latest Dapper. The problem exists regardless of whether the panel is on a side edge or top/bottom. I believe things were much better under breezy, but I can't remember exactly how it worked. ** Changed in: gnome-utils (Ubuntu) Status: Unconfirmed => Confirmed -- Dictionary lookup applet is far too small https://launchpad.net/bugs/48386 -- desktop-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/desktop-bugs
