    Enable "search and look up" tool in Acrobat Reader


      Hello everyone,


      Im new to Acrobat Reader and wanted to ask, if there is any possiblity to enable the search tool that normally appears in iOS, when you 3-Finger click some word.

      I find that tool very helpful, especially in lectures, since it opens a small window with some explanation oder wikipedia article on the topic.

      I could not find a way to enable it in the Reader (works out in other programms very well).


      Thanks a lot for your help!

          Have you tried selecting the word in the pdf by double-clicking on it > right-click > look up  'selected word'...... Below is the screenshot:


          For touch-enabled devices, double-tap to select the word > then tap and hold the selected word to get look up option. Below is the screenshot:
