ADD THIS FEATURE!

Here's a feature that easy to add, and I would totally love. In the EDIT menu, under MAKE LINK, add "Link to Dictionary" that prompts the user for a word, then inserts an URL that links it to a definition on the web. The URL would look like this for the word "gullible" ... http://www.dictionary.com/search?q=gullible

I am currently using dictionary.com to do this, but any online dictionary would do. Maybe even allow the user to specify?

Also, is there a way to have all of your friends in the "Link to User" menu? It seems to be a pulldown menu, but it's always blank for me.

Keep up the great work on this wicked app. If you need any free art or web work for this project, I would be happy to volunteer.

Well, I've found the Google Search Service to be very useful in iJournal. :)

I'm not getting friends in my menu, either. I sniffed around through settings and prefs and did not find anywhere to turn that feature on. Hmmm.

Funny you mentioned this. I'd been meaning to add the Link to google and dictionary.com for a while. Its not customizable, just a straightforward linking mechanism. Now we just have to hope that Google and Dictionary.com don't go changing their URL's on us... *crosses fingers*

So, if you want you can check out the latest cvs for this.

CONTEXTUAL MENU!
This kind of thing would be GREAT as a contextual menu! Especialy if one were able to set up sets in the preferences or something. (aka make an entry, the URL format, title for the contextual menu)
