10.3: IntelliPoint driver removes Apple mouse acceleration
Authored by: macmurph on Dec 10, '03 05:59:56PM
BTW, if you have an MS intellimouse... You should definitely try this tip: http://osxfaq.com/tips/murphy/index.ws

I set my scroll wheel to automatically trigger the Universal Access zoom in and out feature.

I use a Microsoft Intellimouse. In the Microsoft Mouse panel I set the "Press and Roll Forward" to Keystroke Command-Option + and the "Press and Roll Backward" to keystroke Command-Option -

Then I turned on zooming in the Universal Access Panel.

When I press and roll forward on the scroll wheel, it zooms in on the part of the screen I want to study. It works so well, I use it every few minutes to study images on the web or get a closer look at small text.

For those that dont have a Microsoft Mouse, this will probably work in USB overdrive.

Also, I made one exception for Photoshop so that instead of using the Universal Access Zoom, it uses the Photoshop zoom. The shortcuts are Command + and Command - in that case.

Enjoy :-)
