    Alright, these trackpad gestures on my macbook are really pissing me off. Is there any way to disable them?

    Which one(s) are you having issues with? I don't see how you could accidently trigger a 3 or 4 finger swipe...

    If it's the right click/scroll with two fingers, just uncheck the corresponding boxes in the system preferences-->trackpad field.

    Odd question, does anyone else find the two finger swipe backwards on the macbook pro? I feel like I am doing the opposite of my iphone. I don't see a way to reverse the action. Am I nuts or does anyone else have this issue? Is there an easy reverse option that I am missing?

    I had a little bit of trouble getting used to the 2 finger stuff. :eek:


    the trackpad is so big that it just feels natural to use to fingers to move around and click, but I'm getting the hang of it. just give it time

    I love the ability to use two fingers. But everytime I go back to the iphone its the opposite. Just thought that was weird. Did you get used to it even going back and forth?

    I guess the computer is the more logical way, I have just been using the iphone for a year, got the MBP today. On my phone I swipe down and the screen goes down. On the MBP I swipe down and the screen goes up.


    Nice to know I am the only one who is having trouble....lol

    It would piss me off not to have gestures. Also I have never had any problems going between the iphone and macbook, they both seem to be the way that makes sense to me.

    Oh sorry, I guess I should change my signature. I just got a MBP 13". As far as I know the Ibook doesn't support gestures. Sorry.

    gestures are amazing - learn how to work them well, and you will find yourself never going back to a laptop without them ;)
