    Before on snow leopard i could hold control key and swipe upwards to zoom in, but now i can't seem to do that?

    Anyone know how to get that back?

    Also, is it possible to make the '2 finger pinch to zoom' zoom the application in/out?
    At the moment when i 2 finger pinch to zoom it zooms in wherever the cursor is.

    Thanks for any help and advice

    Are you using 2 fingers to swipe?
    That's working as designed. I don't think you can change that.

    For the Snow Leopard style scrolling up/down whilst holding Ctrl to zoom in/out, go to:
    System Preferences > Universal Access.

    Then set Zoom to On.

    Then in the Zoom options, check the box labelled "Use scroll wheel with modifier keys to zoom".

    Thanks Dragon, thats sorted that! Brilliant.

    how about the 2 finger pinch to zoom in/out the application window, instead of it zooming in/out the whole page?
