Okay so I haven't got panther yet, have sympathy for me.

What I'd like to know is how to activate exposť.

I have a laptop and I was wondering if I'll have to use the (tiny little) F9 key to activate exposť, or can I make it function+shift or some other key combination?

Failing that I'll have to get a multi button mouse. Maybe one with the buttons on either side for the two styles of exposť.

Moving the mouse to a hot corner is too many strokes on a touch pad :(

You can change the keys or use screen corners, too. I have my fn key as the "show desktop" key and the top right as my "all windows" option.

thanks for the link, but the page doesn't let me know if the activation keys can be changed (as far as I can see)

Your name flowbee, is that the hair cutting tool or the kitesurfing bar?

You can customize Exposť to your liking. Exposť is worth the cost of upgrading alone, but then add in everything else and you really do get what you pay for. Panther ROCKS!

Check out this screen grab. You have a lot of options for the keys. It's showing command+shift+function keys here because of the screengrab command, but you can see that you can map any modifier key (shift, command, option, etc.) to a function key, or any of the other options it shows.

Oops, sorry. I misread your question. Thought you were asking something else. Anyway... looks like it's been answered now.

BTW: It's not a haircutting tool... it's a way of life! :p

Played with it at my local Apple Store, and yes... it does indeed rock. Heavily customizable. I know you don't have an Apple Store Down Under (yet), but if you do have a CompUSA-type-place or local retailer, play with it for awhile there. Well worth the upgrade.
