MacBook Pro :: How To Turn Off Multi-touch Trackpad

How to I disable this damn unibody multitouch trackpad, Or is there a way I can disable certain gestures? It keeps resizing my firefox font sizes, and messing with other stuff, I think there is some pinch gesture that I'm doing when just resting my thumb on the trackpad...

MacBook Pro :: Expanding On Multi Touch Trackpad Gestures?
I'm on my first Mac, a 15" 2010 MBP (2.4 Ghz), and I'm absolutely loving the multi-touch trackpad. It makes browsing things so much easier and even more pleasurable.

One thing that I just this second thought of is how to expand the gesture use more.

I'm in Mozilla now, and I moused up to the refresh button, and thought "what if I could refresh the page by just making a swirling gesture on the trackpad? That'd be pretty damn cool." This could also apply to the "stop" button by making an X gesture.

MacBook Pro :: Customizing The Trackpad - Assign Alternate Commands To Multi-touch Functions?
I bought a new MacBook Pro in June 2009. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to modify the behavior of the multi-touch functions. I find the 3 finger touch function useless. I don't open multi page documents often enough for this to be useful and I never use iPhoto. I would find it much more useful as a way to navigate through spaces. Is there a way that anyone knows of to assign alternate commands to multi-touch functions?

MacBook :: Trackpad Clicks Not Recognized Since Multi-Touch Update

MacBook Aluminum :: Multi-touch Trackpad Response Not Working / Only Scrolling Up And Down
I get no multi-touch responses on my trackpad since installing snow leopard; I only get 2-finger swipes - basically scrolling up and down. Nothing else.

What gives? Everything was working great before, and I've played with all this stuff in System Prefs and it should be working.

OS X Leopard :: Multi Touch Trackpad Horizontal Scrolling
Got an all new shining Macbook Pro (last one died unexpectedly) with a new Multi-Touch trackpad, and I've unfortunately discovered that it is no longer possible to turn off horizontal scrolling [URL] This is a complete showstopper as many OSX applications I use handles horizontal scrolling very badly, and to make matters worse almost all Windows applications (accessed using either WMVare, Parallels or through VNC/remote desktop) goes completly nuts if you scroll horizontally in a window/view without a horizontal scrollbar (ie almost always). Is there any way I can turn of this "feature", or do I have to buy an old Macbook Pro of ebay to be able to use my trackpad?

Hardware :: Magic Trackpad Allows Multi-touch Gestures On Desktop?
Apple has brought the multi-touch gestures available to MacBook users to the desktop with its new $69 Magic Trackpad, as well as a new battery charger for wireless devices like the Magic Trackpad, Apple keyboard, and Magic Mouse.Magic TrackpadThe Magic Trackpad offers Apple's patented multi-touch technology through a smooth glass and aluminum design. It enables users to scroll smoothly up and down a page with inertial scrolling, pinch to zoom in and out, rotate an image with fingertips and swipe three fingers to flip through a collection of Web pages or photos.

The Magic Trackpad can be configured to support single button or two button commands and supports tap-to-click as well as a physical click.Photos of Apple's Magic Trackpad first leaked earlier this summer, showing the multitouch desktop accessory before it was even announced. Earlier this month, the device received FCC approval, though at the time it was simply identified as a mysterious Bluetooth device.Apple first brought multi-touch functionality to its desktops last year with the Magic Mouse, a Bluetooth wireless mouse that allows users to use their fingers to scroll and zoom via the surface of the hardware. Every iMac and Mac Pro comes with the Magic Mouse, though users can now order the new Magic Trackpad for $69 as an option.

Apple Battery Charger Apple claims its new Battery Charger sets a new industry standard by having the lowest standby power usage value ? or "vampire draw" ? of any similar charger on the market. That's the energy most chargers continue to draw after their batteries are fully charged.Instead, the Apple Battery Charger senses when its batteries are done charging and automatically reduces the amount of power it needs. In addition, the reusable batteries that come with each Apple Battery Charger are designed to maintain a high charge capacity for hundreds of charges, so you no longer have to buy new batteries or toss them every few months.Each Apple Battery Charger comes with six AA NiMH batteries, intended to allow users to run their keyboard keyboard and mouse or trackpad, while allowing two more for spare charging.

"Unlike many other reusable batteries, these batteries have an incredibly long service life ? up to 10 years," Apple said. "Which means you can finally break the cycle of buying and disposing of those toxic, single-use alkaline batteries. The batteries that come with the Apple Battery Charger kit also have an extraordinarily low self-discharge rate. Even after a year of sitting in a drawer, they still retain 80 percent of their original charge. That way you always have backup power when you need it[URL]

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Multi-touch Gestures (trackpad) Stopped Working On Mac Mini 3,1
Having been able to use most of the multi-touch gestures yesterday, this morning only the single-finger tap, 2-finger tap and 3-finger double-tap are having any effect. Swiping left, right, up or down with 4 fingers has no effect (although 3-finger drag in Google maps is working, together with 2-finger scroll).

OS X :: Software Update Doesn't Show The Latest Multi-Touch Trackpad Update?
Yesterday Apple released Safari 5.0.1 and Magic Trackpad and Multi-Touch Trackpad Update 1.0, but Software Update on my Mac makes me able to download only the first one (Safari 5.0.1) - which I did. Why can't it find the Multi-Touch Trackpad Update?

- My MacBook is fine (it's 13-inch, Mid 2009).

- My OS is fine (Mac OS X v10.6.4).

Sure, I can download it manually, BUT it makes me really annoyed if something on my Mac works not as good as it should.

MacBook Pro :: Spaces With Multi Touch?
I have started using spaces quite a bit recently and I'm not a huge user of expos�. I was wondering if there was a way to change the 4 fingered swipe to switch between spaces? So swiping 4 fingers up would go to the space above and similar actions with left, right and down.

MacBook Pro :: How To Customize Multi Touch Pad
Is there a way that I can customize the gestures for the multi-touch pad? Specifically the 4-fingure up/down motions. I use corners for Expose and View Desktop.

Also, does anyone know if there is a way to have programs recognize the gestures? Specifically i'd like to have Firefox recognize the 3-Finger Swipe to move Forward and Back in the history--much like Safari does.

MacBook Pro :: How To Disable Select Multi Touch Gestures
Since getting the new MBP, I've found that I accidentally do the pinch command in Safari ALL the time, which either increases or decreases the text size. This is incredibly annoying, and there doesn't seem to be a way to disable it in Trackpad System Preferences. Is there a workaround (Terminal or otherwise)? If it requires disabling all multi-touch functionality, I'm fine with it.

MacBook Pro :: Occasionally Multi Touch Pad Interface - Stops Working
I've owned my MBP for about 2 months or so now... When I purchased the MBP I immediately updated to SL, and have since taken all of the required updates to the OS.

During this time I have probably seen about 3 times where the multi-touch interface of the trackpad will not recognize 3 or 4 finger swipes. It's easily resolved by doing a log-out and log-in so that the driver is re-initialize or whatever. But wondering if anyone else has encoutnered this?

If 3 or 4 fingers are non-responsive, 1 and 2 finger routines work just fine.... It makes it hard to switch or identify running apps once the 4 fingers stops working, and usually first identified when I can't use the back function with the 3 fingers.

I'm hoping that 10.6.2 of OS X will include this enhancement, but again just curious if this is a slightly common problem or just an anomoly that I seem to occur.

MacBook Pro :: Multi Touch Zoom Function Doesn't Work In IWork Applications
Just settling down to use my new MacBook Pro and found that the trackpad multi-touch pinch to zoom feature does not work with iWork '09 apps. A call to the apple tech support just now confirmed that they don't have any documentation on whether it is mean to work or not. Seems Apple is staying silent on this one. I'm incredulous this feature doesn't work on iWork '09 seeing they're marketed as productivity apps and zooming is one of the most common things a user does across all of them to complete almost all tasks. Just shows that the MacBook Pro design and development teams don't use iWork.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Touch Click - Too Sensitive
I have my trackpad set to touch-click but it's too sensitive. Just touching the trackpad to move the cursor position often ends up clicking on things that happen to be under the cursor at the time.

Final Cut Pro :: Multi Touch Gestures Not Working In Timeline?
I use a MacBook Pro and as such was enjoying the multi-touch functionality of the trackpad, particularly in zooming and scrubbing the playhead in the timeline. However, I had some unrelated issues and had to re-install Final Cut and now the multi-touch gestures don't work. I can still scroll left and right (using two fingers) in the timeline, but I can't zoom or scrub the playhead anymore.

MacBook Pro :: Can I Turn Off Rotate On The Touch Pad
I've recently bought my macbook pro, and I'm really enjoying it, and it's just insanely genious. It has but one little annoying flaw, which is the rotate effect on the multitouch pad.

I was wondering if it was possible to turn off the effect. I like all the other applications regarding the pad, it's just the one, but it seems that I can't configure it myself.
