    is it possible to zoom with keyboard key + magic mouse gesture? to zoom, i must do "cmd" + "++," on the keyboard. if i could press a key on the keyboard, and then scroll up with the magic mouse, that would be great! :apple:

    Look into BetterTouchTool or MagicPrefs or just try the zoom gesture (pinch outwards).
    Or do you mean the actual screen zoom activated via CTRL+SrollWheelUp/Down?

    Magic Mouse: "Control" + "Scroll"

    Works well.

    the magic mouse doesn't have a "pinch outwards," gesture.

    I'm using this on two different Macs running Lion. Works for me.

    Make sure to scroll up (zoom in) or down (zoom out).

    It does, though you might need to use BetterTouchTool or MagicPrefs, which I mentioned earlier.
    I currently don't use my MM as I prefer cable mice, but when I used the MM with BTT on Mac OS X 10.6, I could use multi touch gestures like pinching.
