Depending on how much you are willing to invest on learning the
program and how much consistency you want enforced, you might
also want to consider SIL's LinguaLinks program, which excels
in dictionary work.
Shoebox is more user-friendly, and you can do quite a lot with
it, as evidenced by the widespread use it has had across the
world, with both SIL and non-SIL users. LinguaLinks is harder
to learn, but it is an object-oriented program, enforces more
consistency, and has better built-in cross-links using various
semantic roles such as part-whole, members of a articular
semantic domain, subentries, various senses, and so forth. Look
for both of them at http://www.sil.org/computing/ .
Within a couple years, SIL hopes to have "Fieldworks" out,
which will combine the user-friendliness of Shoebox with the
power of LinguaLinks. Watch for it!
