    So I see it says you can swipe to show Notification Center but I can not figure out how. I can swipe to close it, but to get it to show up I have to click the icon in the upper right.

    What am I missing?

    Swipe from right to left starting from "off" of the trackpad with two fingers.


    My question is if anyone knows how to use BetterTouchTool to get this same "off of the edge" feature for the left side for a different gesture?

    its a 2 finger from the very right hand edge of the trackpad into the middle.
    have a look in settings>trackpad for a vide of it being done if this still doesnt help you

    Yup this wasn't obvious straight pretty well once you know the technique.

    I am really disappointed how it has been implemented. I thought you would be able to swipe from the right but not have to do it from off the trackpad I do not like this because I believe that doing finger swiping on the aluminium MacBook Pro will cause pitting and corrosion good thing I have the magic trackpad.

    You don't have to do it from outside the trackpad. How would the trackpad register that, exactly?

    It's the right-most centimeter or so that you need to start in.

    yeah, and get it - its high maintenance swipe, it doesn't consistently work, atleast for me.

    which makes a gesture pointless if its not reliable.

    on the magic trackpad, it works about 90% of the time.

    mbp trackpad : 50% at best. only higher if i start OFF the trackpad.

    It is easier on the magic trackpad, indeed. I guess the width of the hit target depends on the physical size of the trackpad.

    Either way, I've never seen a unibody macbook do any pitting at all, and the older ones that had that never had it caused by fingers-- always wrists.

    I've found it easier to open Notification center if you have "Swipe Between Pages" set to 3 fingers. I had it set to 2 fingers and I always ended up going back a page in Safari... very frustrating if you do it multiple times.
