Why use Smart Lookup?
When you are working on a document and want to get a definition or some more information about something, use Smart Lookup to add that extra dimension.
In Word you will find Smart Lookup on the References Ribbon in the Research group (I will talk about Researcher in another blog post ) and in the other Office programs you will find it on the References Ribbon.
Note for Mac Users – if you are using Office 365 – then you will also have Smart Lookup just like the Windows users .
Using Smart Lookup
To use it, select the word or phrase you want to look up and then click the Smart Lookup icon.
A task pane will open on the right of the screen with a list of suggestions for you. It is powered by Bing – it will look something like this:
You will see that there are more items in the task pane that are not showing – you can simply scroll down to see more. If you want even more suggestions, there is a show more button at the very bottom.
You will see that you can open the site or copy and paste the text into your document.
