    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 away...works 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.
