On my Mac I have installed a little menu bar helper called PopClip.

You can configure it to do a lot of amazing things - for example look up any selected text with a number of search engines. Beside the usual suspects it has options like Wikipedia and Wolfram. Very powerful - beats most other solutions.

Feeding a selection to search engines is only a small part of what it is able to do. Worth the small one time purchase.

Even more frustrating—and disappointing—than absence of the ubiquitous "look up" option in the contextual menu is that it USED TO BE THERE! Somehow it rolled off the edge of Evernote's tableau of useful features when a whole bunch of more team-oriented features were introduced. This is a writing app for heaven's sake! It would seem a no-brainer to maintain the "Look up..." option in the popup menu, but maybe that's the problem: the dev team isn't using a brain. Even my html text editor has "Look up in Dictionary" at the very top (see attached)! In fact, I'm hard-pressed to think of any app that doesn't enable a quick lookup of a selected word or phrase. A third-party app should NOT be the solution.

What does spell check have to do with word lookup??? I have spellcheck enabled, and EN does, indeed, call out misspellings. So, yay Evernote? 🤨 The subject of this feature request is LOOK UP, not SPELLING.

I don't see where I was rude by not appreciating your irrelevant participation in this topic. My frustration with a product I pay for is justifiable, and since this is a place to log general feature requests, I am logging my request to reinstate this feature that somehow got eliminated.

If I did not understand your first post, never mind. Try to understand every subtle detail in my language (you could see from my post I am not a native speaker).

Other users is not the people you want to drop your frustration on - just as a reminder. Maybe feel frustrated about yourself - you picked the product, from a wide range of apps available for this or similar tasks.

EN offers 2 options to send requests into official channels: The feedback function build into the clients, and the support ticket. Feedback will not be answered, a ticket will get a reaction.
