    Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a multitouch gesture to use the F10 key (pushes all windows out of the way to get to desktop). In Snow Leopard it was a 4 finger swipe, but in Lion, I believe it is dashboard. Also, I had some terminal commands set up in SL that I would like to get working again. My favorites were bringing widgets to the desktop by holding shift and dragging, and showing the contents of folders while using quick look. Thanks!

    EDIT: I found the F10 function, but the 3 finger pinch is difficult to do on the smaller trackpad, is there any way to change this?

    i wanna be able to use the Three-Swipe gesture as a back & forth feature for finder and also as a grab & drag. apparently you have to choose...hopefully it's just a bug.

    on a per-app basis, you can pick a gesture action for each app in BetterTouchTool, but using those 2 actions with the same gesture wouldn't work in the same app.

    Grab and drag left or right would be the same as swipe left or right

    Thanks! BetterTouchTool serves its purpose. Any idea on the terminal commands?

    What terminal commands are you referring to?

    The ones I mentioned in my first post: Dragging a widget onto the desktop and showing the contents of folders in quick look.
