Use modifier keys with Active Screen Corners
Authored by: leenoble_uk on May 12, '09 02:48:08PM

Dammit. I was hoping this hint would let you assign multiple actions to each corner as I don't have enough corners to go around. I would like to set a corner to show all windows that by holding down option would show spaces (i.e zoom out more)

Use modifier keys with Active Screen Corners

What, you mean you don't have one of the new hexagonal displays yet? I thought everyone would have upgraded by now ;)

I agree with you completely. Having set up corners for spaces, all windows, app windows and desktop, I need one for dashboard. I know I can use a keyboard button, but if you're mouse centric like I am, switching between mouse and keyboard is actually worse than being forced to use keyboard only.

Plus, using corners doesn't half impress Windows users, especially with drag and drop!!

This hint isn't so much use for me, as I'm pretty well in control of my corners, but it'll be great on my wife's iMac as she often activates corners accidentally, yet does need them.

I'll have to see if the modifiers get in the way of any drag and drop operations, but I'm guessing it'll be OK.
