Mac: look up & data detectors (three finger tap) disabled in Atom?


#1

Inside of Atom, I read & writing a lot of documentation. Sometimes I run into words that I don’t know the definitions of. When I browse the Web in Chrome & the aforementioned happens to me, I simply 3-finger tap the word I’m interested in learning about and the native Mac Dictionary app appears like so:

Currently, if I try to do this inside of Atom over a word nothing happens. I was just surprised by this since I can do this inside of Google Chrome and not Atom, which also has Chromium based parts, but I don’t know too much else regarding that.

Has anyone else had this same problem? Thanks

Atom doesn’t currently support this feature (and other things like text Services). You can subscribe to this Issue for updates on this particular functionality:
