汉字 not in Pleco.

Every now and then I encounter characters which do not appear in Pleco, especially with really old books like 仪礼 or the writings of 冯梦龙. I'm not in need of a definition for most of them (the editors of the books provided them), but I am curious if anybody has any suggestions for what to do with the list I've been making of just such characters.

Perhaps other add-on dictionaries, such as Hanyu Da Cidian (380,000 entries it says In the description) has the other items on your list.

Perhaps. I have 14 dictionaries, but I've been slow in getting the two big ones, the Grand Ricci and Hanyu Da Cidian, as well as the TCM dictionary, which I plan on getting eventually, as well.

Install the Unihan dictionary, un-set "fallback only," or w/e the setting is - see if your characters are on there. Anything in CJK EXTs should all be in there.

The settings have so many options available I'm not sure what you mean. I have uni, but I don't know what you mean by fallback only. I've searched through the settings and can't find anything that looks like it would help.

Settings ---> Manage Dictionaries ---> Uni ---> Search only as fallback

Turn this off, it should ensure that you get a hit every time and not only when zero dictionaries contain the character you are looking for. This will help rule out any false-positives.
