Based on BvG DocsLib, I have written a dictionary stack which expands  
the info gathered fron Rev's dictionary into a stack you can use,  
customize, etc...
There is a small presentation at
The direct link to the stack is

For copyright reasons, the dictionary stack comes empty. You can  
build it if you have a recent release of revolution, i.e., on which  
is supported by DocsLib by BvG (2.8.1 as far as I am concerned).
The building goes in two steps:
1) creating the supporting files for the dictionary (left button of  
the "initialize substack")
2) using thes files to generate the cards in the stack (right button  
of the "initialize substack"). Be patient if you have a "slow"  
machine. This is required only onc.

If you want to play around, use the "find" window to list all of the  
dictionary entries for a particuliar keyword, then refine the search,  
or vist the list of cards and edit the history, and then apply tags.

I hope you will enjoy it.

Suggestions, bug reports and compliments are welcome.

Disclaimer: I am new to revolution, this is why I needed a dictionary  
that suited needs. Programming/interface is certainly not optimal.  
Large screens are a bonus. And hanks to BvG for his docsLib.

Cheers from Paris and Happy New year!
