Modify trackpad settings for Photoshop work on laptops

Thanks for the tip!

You can actually move the display in the majority of Adobe apps without changing your tool. The full shortcut is: Command+SpaceBar, then release Command and move the mouse. (With space still held down.)

This way you can, for example, move the display in InDesign even when the typing tool is selected. Handy!

Yeah, this works for Illustrator too! I found it so annoying! Gone! Thanks!

Try using the CTRL, OPT, Shift, Space, and Apple/Command keys to get all sorts of options to tools and palettes in Adobe apps. You can use combinations of these keys for even more variations. (symmetric, vs asym; center-based vs corner-based; copy-drag; zoom; pan; constraints, etc.) Experiment away!

get your facts straight, for adobe and macromedia:

hand tool = spacebar only
zoom in tool = spacebar + cmmnd (then drag or click)
zoom out tool = spacebar + cmmnd + alt
