View Full Version : Four Fingers Swipe Down for Application Expose is Gone?

heya,

Previously in Lion 10.7 DP2, swiping down with four fingers would do application Expose (as in, it would show all the application I had open for that application).

Now, however, with the latest DP3 update, swiping down with four fingers does nothing. Swiping up with four fingers still does Mission Control.

It seems very strange that Apple would remove something like this. Is it a bug, and are other people noticing this as well?

Is there another quick way to trigger application Expose?

Cheers,
Victor

heya,

Another thing I noticed - swiping down on the icon in the dock doesn't do application Expose either.

It used to in Lion 10.7 DP2.

Can anybody else confirm this? Is Apple moving away from application Expose?

Cheers,
Victor

I don't have Lion so I can't say anything official, but I've heard that even clicking and holding on a dock icon no longer triggers Application Exposť (it used to). Maybe they're removing it altogether?

That would be stupid, but Application Exposť and Mission Control are separate things, maybe Apple wants to integrate them. It would make sense to have everything unified. Why would Apple not unify App Exposť, but unify Spaces and All Exposť? I guess we'll see the answer in the next build, but I'm sure they're not leaving it like this. Wasting a 4 finger gesture would be stupid!

Confirmed, not working for me either. Definitely strange since now 4-finger swipe down doesn't do anything at all. Usually apple doesn't just remove features unless they're replacing it with something else (ie. a new "thing" for 4-finger swipe down to activate).

Good catch.

Most likely an accidental removal since the CONTROL+ARROW DOWN key combo still works.

HINT: four fingers = control; try other arrows.

I was about to respond that control + down arrow doesn't even work for me, but that was while I was trying it over fullscreen Safari. It works when I'm over a desktop screen. Did the the four finger swipe down work over fullscreen apps in the previous version?

Well, with the Magic Mouse two finger double-tap invokes Mission Control, but if done on an App icon in the Dock it invokes App Expose. Haven't tried with a trackpad yet...

That's probably a bug. Already reported to Apple.

Same with me as well, and adding any new desktops results in a blue screen being added, with the generic "Mission Control" background on it. (Similar to folders in iOS and multitask wallpaper)

Anybody have this as well?

How do you add desktops I tried to find a button or menu but I did not see one

Trigger Mission Control, move mouse over the upper right corner area.
