    Hey I know the 4 finger swipe changes between full screen apps, but it doesn't also cycle through my desktops. is there a way to do it? I can't find such a thing in the gestures preferences.

    Other that (and MS Communicator crashing when trying to send an instant message), and VMWare losing my Boot Camp partition, everything else has been great/smooth.

    the only way I can get this to swipe through desktops is to only have one app per desktop (full screen or normal size), then you can swipe through them

    have more than 1 app on a desktop and swiping doesn't work

    My 4 finger swipe isn't working even with full screen apps. Yes I've made sure the gesture is enable (Swipe left or right with 4 fingers to change full screen apps)

    I have full screen Safari and Reeder open and in safari it works like going 'forward' or 'backward' with a two finger swipe, and in Reeder it does the same thing.


    The 4 finger up for mission control and 4 finger down for application expose work fine.

    3 fingers works for me. Desktops and Full Screen apps.

    I believe MS is fixing this.

    3 finger swipe will go between multiple desktops/full screen apps.
