Is there a gesture in the magic mouse that can do the Epose All Windows option?
install BetterTouchTools (link)
you can add gestures for all sorts of different things, and customize the Magic Mouse to do what you want.
Thanx, although company warns "BetterTouchTool app contains experimental code. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!" so what do you think?
I've used it for the last few weeks and it seems to be working well...
so say i can put a gesture with 5 fingers for expose? can it do that sort of thing?
Yeah best thing to do is download it and see. It can do no harm. I've been using it for a few weeks on 3 different macs. No problems here.
Ive been using BTT for a while and I love it.
The earlier versions were a bit rough but the ones out now are excellent and they update all the time.
I use it to add expose w/ three finger tap or as a third button when working in Maya.
I've been running BetterTouchTool since I got my Magic Mouse and it has never caused any problems.
why has Apple not implemented Expose yet?
Just set up a Hot Corner for Expose. Works great!
I don't think you can do a 5 finger swipe but you can do 3 fingers... or "whole hand on mouse" or some other stuff like that.. Works well, frequent updates.
I've been using BTT for a couple of weeks, ever since I got my Magic Mouse. In fact, BTT is the reason I decided to get the MM.
The only real quirk I've found is that if you use fast user switching, BTT locks up your computer. So, it is a single user application.
I've always used a hot corner to do this.
I'm not having that problem -- at least I haven't seen it. Is it if you have fast user switching available or if you actually switch users? (I'm wondering if I've switched users since I've installed BTT and hesitant to do it now!)
It happens if you actually switch users. And it doesn't happen immediately. It happens after maybe 10 minutes of use. Be prepared to do a power cycle to recover. Sleep doesn't recover.
BTT is as stable as it goes now, a lot of the bugs are being ironed out and a new version is coming tomorrow with the ability to add modifier keys!
How IS the Magic Mouse? I'm looking for a mouse for working with Photoshop (so it has to be extremely accurate), what do you guys suggest?
Just got a Magic Mouse and I installed BetterTouchTool. I just love this application! It's something that should have been provided directly by Apple...
3 fingers swipe down: Expose
3 fingers swipe up: Desktop
Both to gimmick the 4 fingers swipe up and down of the MultiTouch trackpad.
3 fingers tap: Dashboard
3 fingers click: Cmd-Click so I can open a new tabs with links in FireFox.
It's enough for now!
Yeah i dont understand why you have to go thru a third party developer to get something that Apple can easily do.
Well if Apple did everything what would all the other 3rd party developers do? Become burglars?
