Some dictionary entries can be very long and can contain many results, so you may wish to search them to find the section that is relevant to you.
Select Edit ▸ Find.
The Find bar will appear at the bottom of the Dictionary window. Type in your search term to search within the definition that is currently displayed.
Click Previous or Next to scroll through the results. The search will not wrap around: in other words, it will not go to the top of the page when you are on the last result and click Next.
