I remember when I first got Leopard a few weeks ago I was really impressed by spotlight dictionary but it doesn't work anymore. It doesn't even try to search the dictionary.

Anybody know whats up?

Also spotlight calculator doesn't work but I only tried it for the first time today. All the normal functions work and nothing is disabled in spotlight preferences.

Are you guys talking spotlight or dashboard?:confused:


If you are meaning the Dasboard widgets. Just click on dashboard and hit the manage widgets button (Big Plus on left) then delete the widgets then re add them.

Spotlight. Type in 1+1 for example and see the calculator result :). New feature,

Yeah so I have discovered, I personally find the widgets easier and quicker.

I'm talking about spotlight ie. not a dashboard widget.
