Alternative for trackpad users
Authored by: nhl00 on Nov 09, '04 12:01:39AM

If you're using a trackpad instead of a mouse (you mention that this was being done on a powerbook) there's a trick to warp the cursor to the far side of the screen.

I'll give an example of how to move from the far left to the far right, I'll also assume that you're right handed (this works for all directions, and I'm left handed so it works for lefties too):
- start on the left side of the track pad with your index finger
- start moving to the right
- touch the tack pad with your middle finger
- lift your index finger off the trackpad

it takes a couple of tries to get familiar with the motion, but you can teach yourself to fly to any corner of the screen almost instantly.

Yap, this works very well, even too well. I'm constantly invoking Exposť involuntarily, at least I now know what is triggering it.
