PlecoDict Using Modified Wenlin Dictionary?

I have already made many modifications to the wenlin dictionary. (Such as adding cantonese pinyin to quite a few characters - which helps me remember and understand the terms.)

I was wondering if there is any way I can replace the pleco abc dictionary to wenlin dictionary I have modified? Or maybe I should not replace, but add an additional one instead and tell pleco to use my new dictionary for the definitions?

I'm afraid there's no mechanism for doing this right now - while we did license the ABC dictionary from Wenlin, we use completely different systems for storing the dictionary contents, and there's not really any way to exchange data between PlecoDict and Wenlin except by exporting text from one and importing it into the other. (and I don't think Wenlin has a text export feature for customized entries)
