If you have a newer MacBook Pro, you can force click (like a longer click which appears to click a second time) on the trackpad to define a word. This works for me in the new beta desktop app.

That's what I've always done. In the beta version I'm now using, it's not available.

The same here. This macOS (mine is Big Sur version 11.1) functionality still doesn't work in the Evernote environment. What is a pity because it forces us to leave the application, enter another one (Dictionary), do the word search and return to Evernote... Will they ever solve this (big) issue?

My Evernote version is 10.5.0 build 2114 beta

While there isn't a right-click menu option for dictionary lookup anymore, there are two workarounds:

  1. Force click on a trackpad, if you have a newer MacBook
  2. Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Cmd-D

Number 2 works for me. Thanks, Paul A.!
