I really use this feature a lot, and it's irritating to have to create a new line to look up a word, then delete it after getting the definition. It won't allow me to pick a specific word to define.

What is the keyboard, button, or menu equivalent of your "3 finger press" action?

actually it's Command+Control+D while hovering over the word or the three finger press

Well I am not sure this is a bug or more an idea for improvement ... I don't use a Mac.

You probably want to post it as a bug providing all the details. You may also want to check the development page to see if it is something they are already working on. Or you can submit it as an improvement on the crazy idea page.
