Online dictionary lookups in WFP

Sorry if this has been dealt with elsewhere but I can't seem to find an answer.

My WFC licence is due for renewal and I'm wondering about adding WFP for the Excel / Powerpoint ability.

My question: can you lookup online dictionaries (e.g. Leo, Linguee, IATE...) from inside WFP? The user guide (as far as I can see) gives no indication.

In WFC I currently use Multifultor and/or ABBYY Lingvo (the latter on the hard drive).

I remember that the (free) version of WFP I tried when it first came out wouldn't work with the Langenscheidt popup dictionary I was then using.

Have things improved?

Grateful for any hints and tips.

Greetings from sunny(!) southwest France

I use WordFast Classic and it handles Excel and PowerPoint no problem, as long as the MS Office version you are using is no higher than 2010.
I don't know about the other issues mentioned, as I don't seem to have any problems using online dictionaries at the same time as working in WFC either...
