Dictionary won't disable even after following the directions. I use Big Sur 11.6

Questioner General

I followed the recommendations. Apple>System Preferences>Keyboard shortcuts etc. uncheck Dictionary.



After following those directions and rebooting the computer it still doesn't work. The dictionary will still pop up while I am trying to highlight or move something, completely thwarting my efforts to highlight or move.



Is there anyway to completely remove Dictionary from the system?

Perhaps you just need to disable the ForceTouch gesture in TrackPad System Preferences, or don’t press do hard.
