Question: Contextual menu open word in Dictionary

When I try to look up a word in Dictionary I get this popup window:

User uploaded file

If I click the blue ‘More’, the popup expands. What I really want is to actually open the word in Dictionary app, like it did in OSX 10.9. Is there any way to dump the popup and just open the word in Dictionary.app? Is there an easy way to add a clickable link to the popup to open in Dictionary without scrolling to the bottom of the popup? It seems like Apply is hiding to Dictionary link and making it hard to find. If it was at the top of the popup window it would make it easier.

The dialog you see is what is there now. Both Dictionary and Thesaurus information is displayed. It works fine on my system without problems. You may not like it but it is what it is. Complain here: Feedback - Apple Support.
