Description 2013-06-05 09:32:57 UTC
OSX supports many touchpad gestures one of which is the "Lookup Gesture":
A three finger tap does a lookup of the highlighted word or the one under the cursor. OSX 10.8 uses a three finger double-tap instead.

Then a popup will show details about the word from the OSX Dictionary, Thesaurus, Glossary and eventually also extracts from Wikipedia.

The problem is, that AOO 3.4.x up to today's trunk version only the first word will be looked up regardless of the text highlight or the cursor position.

"hdu" committed SVN revision 1605355 into trunk:
#i122471# make the Mac lookup feature handle the correct word

Fixed with the commit above. This nice Mac feature works now and the fix is small and risk-less, so it may be a candidate for the bugfix release.

grant showstopper flag, fix is available and uncritical

The fix has been merged for the AOO 4.1.1 target too.

Verified on OSX 10.9 with AOO411rc3 in an en-US locale.
