    For some actions (e.g. App Expose), I notices that there are multiple gestures associated with them. For App Expose, I can use either 3 or 4 fingers to swipe. Is there a way to limit them to one gesture (e.g. only 3 or only 4 finger swipe) so I can free up the other one for more uses?

    If I remember correctly, you should be able to change this in 'trackpad' in settings.

    I tried selecting 3 finger or 4 finger wipe under trackpad settings. However, that didn't do a thing (it only changed the demo video beside it). Both 3 and 4 finger swipe still activates the action.

    I've been using BetterTouchTool for quite a while... it's essential. With the increased attention to gestures being brought to Lion, it will become even more useful.

    I have this problem. I use Jitouch, which is a payed alternative to BTT. I had 4finger left and right to access previous/next tab.

    Even when I choose "Swipe between full screen apps" to be 3 fingers, to try and free the 4 finger gesture space, the same gesture with 4 finger does the same thing.

    Is this a bug?
