OS X Lion How to place Dictionary definitions higher up on Spotlight results

I final­ly found an answer to a ques­tion that arose with OS X Lion: How to place Dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tions high­er up on Spot­light results?

I was quite used to quick­ly open #Spot­light  via cmd-space and type in a word I need­ed a def­i­n­i­tion or trans­la­tion for. Before #Lion   those def­i­n­i­tions showed up at the top of Spotlight’s results list and I could reach them with a sin­gle cur­sor down to reveal the details. Sad­ly #Apple  decid­ed to place those def­i­n­i­tions at the bot­tom of Spotlight’s results, hav­ing users go through the whole list to final­ly reach the def­i­n­i­tion. They also decid­ed users must not have the abil­i­ty the revert to the old behav­ior by re-order­ing Spotlight’s results in con­trol pan­el – which would have been easy.

All this effec­tive­ly ren­dered #Dic­tio­nary  use­less on Lion and it still kept being use­less on #Moun­tain­Lion . The ref­er­enced arti­cle from Stack­Ex­change final­ly presents the solu­tion to this prob­lem. It’s easy and just gives back the pow­er to decide by him­self where to place dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tions to the user.

How to place Dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tions high­er up in spot­light results

I used to use spot­light fair­ly fre­quent­ly to quick­ly look up words in a dic­tio­nary. With Lion, I’ve noticed that my dic­tio­nary results have dropped down much low­er in the list of results: I’d like to…
