Questions: Todd Daniel - [masked], cell [masked]
We are thrilled by all the Mac enthusiasts who have found us through Meetup.com. At the last SIG meeting there was some confusion about who we are. We are the Atlanta Macintosh Users Group, a 28-year-old, incorporated, nonprofit, charitable computer organization. If you have visited us, like us, and would like to become a part of our family, we'd love to have you as a member. Dues are $35 per year. You can add a family member for an additional $5. And if you are a student or instructor, you get a $10 discount.
Now, in keeping with tradition, I'd like to review another cool piece of software:
BetterTouchTool v0.763 - http://www.boastr.de/
This free utility allows you to define your own gestures for trackpads or the Magic Mouse. While there are various gesture tool utilities available, this one stands out because you can modify gestures for EACH PROGRAM.
The program also DISABLES gestures, which is mainly what I use it for. For instance, using Adobe InDesign with the Magic Mouse is a pain because an accidental touch with your finger sends you to a different page. So, I loaded InDesign into the application window, right clicked on my mouse, and selected "Disable Single Finger Scrolling."
The gesture set that comes with Lion is fairly limited, and this amazing program allows you to greatly expand your input options. What I particularly like about the program is that the author has thought of everything -- the variety of features and options available are impressive.
