Q: Why don't the buttons in my Webster.app appear?
Q: In Release 1, when I invoke Webster through the Define command in the Request menu, Webster starts up, and my word is entered in the text field, and yet nothing displays in the definitions window. Furthermore, the buttons aren't there. Why?
Q: In Release 2 and later, when I invoke Webster through the Define command in the Services menu, Webster displays the Alert panel
"Ancillary material does not exist (~/Library/References/Dictionary//tiff)
"Dictionary files do not exist in ~/Library/References/Webster-Dictionary/."
And if I wait, the application displays a panel
"Error providing service Define in Webster".
Webster starts up, and my word is entered in the text field, and yet nothing shows up in the definitions window. Furthermore, the buttons aren't there. Why?
A: You probably have a directory called /LocalLibrary/References or ~/Library/References, without Webster-Dictionary or Webster-Thesaurus subdirectories. In Release 1, if this is the case, you can verify it by checking your console window in Workspace Manager. Look for error messages of the form
couldn't open '/LocalLibrary/References/Webster-Dictionary/source'
can't find Webster's Dictionary!
