    Hi~
    I am using OS X 10.5.7 on macbook pro 3.1. When I zoom my screen (by holding ctrl and scroll). I get a close look of a certain area. which is what I want.
    However, if I move my finger on touchpad, both cursor and desktop move. I would like the desktop stay unmoved, always show the particular region, only the cursor move.

    How can I do that?

    Thanks a lot

    If you zoom in a very tiny bit, little enough that the OS snaps you back to 100% as soon as you move the mouse, THEN zoom to where you want, moving to the edges will not move your zoomed area. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature but I use it constantly.
