Wraparound - Remove screen edges
Authored by: syko on Oct 22, '07 08:51:22AM


I don't believe this is necessary, Rob.

I have 3 monitors on my Mac Pro.. all greater than 20"

If you set your mouse acceleration and speed high enough you can simply move your mouse from 1 location to the other.. I can move my mouse from my farthest left monitor all the way to the right edge of my farthest right monitor *instantly*

It may take a little while to get used to the speed increase, but most people that use my setup for about an hour or so usually get used to it quick enough.

I've been using multiple monitors since the //fx days, so having a wraparound, in my opinion, is not really necessary if you bump the speed of your mouse up.

Wraparound - Remove screen edges
Authored by: robg on Oct 22, '07 08:58:44AM

My mouse is, and has been, set to max acceleration for as long as I've used a Mac :).

Even with that, it takes a concerted "fling" to get it from one corner to the other. Sure, it's just an inch or two of "real" desk space, but it's a pain. Also, the super-fast fling only works if you want to get to an entry in the menu. If you want to grab a window that's on the other corner of the screen, you need to have more control, so you drag more slowly.

But if you're happy with your solution, that's great -- and I'll stick with Wraparound :).
