OS X :: Four Finger Swipes On Old MBP With 10.6

Aug 24, 2009

So right now I have a 2008 Penryn Macbook pro with the 4 finger swipe trick in place. I know that Snow leopard is now going to enable this for the old multi touch trackpad users once it is installed. But since I already have the hack in place, when installing the new OS will it hiccup when it sees that and have issues?

OS X :: No Three Finger Swipes In Stacks In Snow Leopard?

Oct 4, 2009

I am surprised Apple did not include a three-finger back and forth between folders in the new Stacks in Snow Leopard. Are there any Terminal hacks yet? Where you looking for this feature? I think it would be a lot easier navigation.

Hardware :: Magic Mouse 2 Finger L / R Swipes Not Working

Dec 18, 2010

The issue is basically as described in the thread title. Out of nowhere, my Magic Mouse doesn't seem to recognize left and right 2-finger swipes (forward/back in browser and I've also used Better Touch Tool to make it change songs in iTunes). The only change I've made was to install the drivers for a Digidesign MBox 2 (audio/MIDI interface for recording). I checked my mouse preferences, and the box for the 2-finger swipe is checked. I've turned the mouse off and back on, restarted BTT, restarted the computer, and pretty much everything else I can think of. Does anyone have any ideas, or has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there any chance the MBox could have some effect on this?

OS X :: Changing 4 Finger Gestures - Adding 3 Finger Click?

Apr 12, 2009

I was wondering if anyone knew how to change the 4 finger gestures built into OSX? I've looked around and found no way to override them. If nobody is knows directly how to accomplish this I'd also be interested in knowing what libraries the handlers may reside in so I can poke around and try and do it myself.

I'm also interested in trying to find a way to make 3 finger tap do a middle click. Or something along those lines.

OS X :: Grey Dim Screen Swipes All The Way / You Need To Restart Your Computer

May 10, 2008

So i updated to 10.5.7 the other day and it took a few restarts to get it going, but all is well now.

i was just tooling around on my computer with several programs open as i usually do (safari looking at gmail, ical, mail, itunes, ichat, weatherdock, TM error logger), then all of a sudden a grey dim starts at the top of the screen and swipes all the way to the bottom then the following message appears: "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the Restart button."

Anyone else have this issue with 10.5.7? what did it mean if you had it in the past?

I'm running a mid 2007 MBP 2.4 SR, with stock 2GB RAM, stock 160GB hard drive, 2 Western Digital external hard drives, one USB for Times Machine and a FW800 for iTunes media.

MacBook :: Don't Like Two Finger Scrolling On MB?

Jun 5, 2009

Problem I have, on my last generation macbook, I would rest one finger on the track pad, and just scroll with the other one, and it would scroll down the whole screen. Now with the new macbook, I actually have to scroll with both fingers for it to actually work. Also can't get used to the two button tap, I keep doing it but mistake, mostly to the huge trackpad and me resting my fingers on it.

Anyone had this similar problems? I know it's nitpicking but I miss my old trackpad.

MacBook Pro :: Three And Four Finger Clicking On The Touchpad?

Aug 27, 2010

Is there a way to activate three and four finger clicking for the trackpad? I was trying to tinker with settings on my new 13" MBP and was surprised that there was nothing. I'd love to be able to activate spaces with a trackpad click rather than a keyboard combination or a hot corner.

OS X :: Multi Finger Gestures Can Be Used On MacBook Pro?

Oct 2, 2010

All jokes aside, I read in Snow leopard (perhaps incorrectly) that two finger and four finger gestures on the trackpad can be used, is there any program on Leopard (10.5.8) that enables these? Specifically it would be great if I could go back in my internet browser by swiping with two fingers.

MacBook :: Four Finger Swipe For Spaces?

Oct 16, 2008

I just got the new MacBook (love it!), and the new finger gestures are pretty cool. Expose works really well, but I'm not too fond about the four finger left/right gestures. I have spaces set up, and I'd rather use the four finger gestures for left and right swipes to switch between spaces. I can't find a way to do this in the system prefs - is there some type of work-around to getting this to work?

MacBook Pro :: Way To Expose A 3-finger Tap As Another Event

Dec 23, 2008

I have tap-to-click enabled, so there's 1 finger tap to click. There's 2 finger tap to right click. There's also 4 finger tap to select an app in the application switcher.But no 3 finger tap! It would work beautifully for me if bound to be a middle-click event. I cannot find ANY mention of this, anywhere. The only results I can find are mentions of the bootcamp XP issue with two-finger taps.So here's my question: Is there any way to expose a 3-finger tap as another event?

MacBook Pro :: Three Finger Swipe In Safari?

Jul 23, 2009

I just switched from firefox to Safari 4. In firefox, if I swiped down with three fingers it would go automatically to the bottom of the page, and if I swiped up it would go to the top.

Is there anyway I can do this in Safari 4? I really miss this function.

OS X :: Changing Two Finger Swipe Direction On Macbook?

Jan 13, 2011

I've had an iPhone for the last few years and am used to the direction of swiping on the iPhone. I recently purchased a macbook pro and noticed that the scrolling on the iPhone and Macbook occur in the opposite direction when scrolling from top to bottom and it's driving me crazy. I'm looking for a way to change the direction that the window moves when using the two finger swipe on my macbook pro.

When scrolling though web pages on the iPhone, sliding your finger from the top of the phone to the bottom displays text above the current viewing window. In other words, if I place my finger over a word and move my finger up or down my finger is still on top of the word when I'm done scrolling. Scrolling on the track pad of my macbook pro works in the opposite direction. On the macbook when I swipe two fingers from the top to the bottom of the track pad the text above the current window is shown. If I put my cursor over a word and two finger swipe the word moves in the opposite direction as my fingers. I would like to change this behavior so that scrolling occurs in the same manner that it does on the iPhone.
