    I recently noticed that I can't enlarge or shrink my cover-flow window nor the icons on my desktop, using the multigesture feature on the trackpad, whereas in the past I could.
    And yet it still works for PDF's safari, firefox beta 3, and iphoto, etc.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Apple removed the pinch gesture in the latest Leopard update.
    On 10.5.5 (Unib MB came with it) I could do it and now on 10.5.6 I can't anymore.

    Thanks.

    Interesting, I wonder why they removed it?

    And I'm glad they sent some kind of notice informing us. It would have saved me the embarrassment of showing off said feature and it not working. Thanks Apple.

    In the 10.5.6 update there's a new Finder option to enable/disable trackpad gestures for zooming in the Finder. It's under Finder > Preferences > Advanced > Zoom using Trackpad. It's disabled by default; click the checkbox to enable it.
