Sorry, I haven't been here in a while. Was just googling for "tantei monogatari" and found a thread here. I had to reactivate my password.

Thanks, Ben Bullock!
Well, you're welcome, Kyle.

The Microsoft IME pad works just as well as my system, if not better, and it's faster, since you aren't sending your kanji input to Florida or Arizona and back. Also the IME pad is set up for input so you don't have to cut and paste anything.

This is MS IME pad in action:

YouTube - MS IME pad examples

This is my system (the "new testing version" as it's advertised):

YouTube - kanji2.sljfaq.org look ahead 20 April 2010

Incidentally I thought the following system was interesting:

手書き漢字検索その2

This claims to have 65,000 characters, so it might be good for those "very hard to find" characters. The underlying recognition engine is the open-source "Tomoe" system (mine is based on Kanjipad, plus some extensions I created myself).

I see you have already got a nice answer from Kyle. For future reference, I don't know if the following page is any use to you:

How is a kanji dictionary used?

It's an attempt to explain how to look up words in a kanji dictionary

But I wrote it a while ago & maybe it is not very well written, so I'll think about how to make it a bit easier to read.

LOL trust me I know how to use my kanji dictionaries. On and off I have had and used that dictionary for 20 years The fact is that the kanji I was looking for is not in that dictionary.

Can you hear a strange high-pitched noise, like a squeal of language-nerd glee? That would be me. Like Kyle, I run on Mac, and I've sorely, sorely missed having Windows IME pad.

Oh, sorry, well perhaps someone else will find that useful.

Which dictionary, sorry?

Is the kanji for "ureshii" not in your dictionary, or was it not ureshii after all? I'm sure the 嬉 (ureshii) kanji is in all Japanese kanji dictionaries.

Wow, don't they have that on the Macintosh? Maybe I could make a deal with Steve Jobs then.
