in the middle of writing, I need another word, and I think having a list of suggested words would help the flow of writing.
I find a word I am looking for is on the tip of the tongue, but a quick search of a thesaurus or dictionary can pinpoint it. I can't find that feature.
I would LOVE a good in-app dictionary/thesaurus/rhyme dictionary etc. I always have one open while writing and having it in app would save screen space!
I'd like to use my Mac thesaurus like I can in other programs. Right-click and "look up" a word to bring up the meaning and alternatives.

This would be very helpful . I catch myself using the same words over and over and having an easily accessible thesaurus would streamline the process.
One of my hesitations of not using Microsoft Word is losing the "similar words" option, which is easily accessible with a right click. Accessing dictionary/thesaurus with a single click within this program would be a selling point for me
I would really love it if the program had an offline version of a dictionary or a thesaurus. Just so if a person was offline and didn't have any wifi or something. AND if they didn't have a dictionary with them.
Id´love this. I am thinking of creating an app of my own for this, but if it was in the program it would be gold :)
I would love this both for seeking better word choices and verifying correct use of the word itself.
This is something I was thinking about when I was reading on my Kindle. Sometimes I use words where I'm not sure if I've used the word correctly, or maybe I want a word that I think would fit better. It would be nice to be able to highlight that word to get a common definition for it or some synonym suggestions.
I am so used to clicking F7 in Word when I need alternative word suggestions - this tool would have been completely converted to Dabble for good!
Especially if you can integrate powerthesaurus. Weirdly, the one time I feel the "app" shell disadvantages me is when I need a quick synonym and have to leave the Dabble program and go to my browser (which already has eleventy-billion tabs, half of which are powerthesaurus tabs from previous synonym searches.
I actually just started using the evaluation version of Dabble, and wrote a "first look" review; the lack of a dictionary is one of my "wish it had" features. Would love to see the context menu on highlight have a "define" or "look up" option. Here's my full review comment:No built-in dictionary. I would often look up words in Google Docs when I was researching or—just being honest here—if I wanted to use a word but wasn't sure if it was the right choice. The Dabble editor doesn't allow me to highlight a word and right-click to define the way Google Docs does. Not a big deal, I can just use a browser plug-in or go to a new tab, but a little bit of a drawback.
