Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017: Looking up for a word in the dictionary

Good afternoon,

 

i use Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 on a MacBook Pro (Mojave) with an external trackpad ("Magic Trackpad"). If I click on a word with three fingers simultaneously, I can look it up in the dictionary. Unfortunately this does not work with PDFs opened in Adobe.

Is there a way to click on a word within a PDF and look up its meaning? Or do I have to take the indirect way via copy word --> open browser --> paste word?

 

Would be grateful for every advice...

Many greetings!

You'll need to take the indirect route as you currently do. Acrobat does not have a built-in dictionary like what you are describing.
