I’ve created a custom dictionary with the Dictionary Development Kit and added it to Dictionary.app on my Mac. It’s working fine but there is one stylistic issue I would like to fix.
The dictionary is for looking up pronunciations of individual Chinese characters and I want the entries to be displayed in a Chinese font. That was not a problem in the body of the dictionary. I just needed to define styles in the CSS file for the tags that use in my XML file. However, the left search list (where you choose from multiple entries that match your search keyword) is still showing the characters in a Japanese font. As an example, the vertical bar of 直 shows up (if you know Japanese or Chinese). The standard Chinese dictionaries I have added to Dictionary.app all show it without the vertical bar, which suggests they are using Chinese fonts. So there must be a way to customize the font in the search list for each dictionary. I just can’t figure out how.
On macOS 13.2.1 (22D68) Ventura, is this font customization possible in Dictionary app?
