    How do I disable the mouse gesture for spinning things in 10.5? I just upgraded and I hate this "feature". I use it all the time accidentally in Photoshop and it's driving me crazy.

    Thanks.

    You cannot disable it ~
    If fine finger control is a problem use a mouse but you still cannot disable the trackpad or set it to ignore accidental commands ..

    Wow. That's a major oversight on Apple's part. I upgraded my macbook from the black one with the standard trackpad button to the new one with the built in button and I always rest my thumb where the button used to be and everytime I use photoshop it take me 5 times longer because I'm rotating pictures all over the place.

    Check out the video in System Prefs > Trackpad..

    Rest your thumb on the front edge instead or do some weight training so it can hold itself up :)
