New Trackpad Gesture in 10.4.8

12 10 2006

I don’t know if this was added earlier, but after I installed the 10.4.8 update I was changing some settings in ‘Keyboard and Mouse’ under ‘System Preferences’ when I spotted a new option under the trackpad settings:

Trackpad Zoom

It’s enabled by default, and by holding Ctrl and then using two fingers to scroll the trackpad, you can zoom the display right in. There are also couple of options that effect how the screen follows the mouse when zoomed in.

I would assume that on a multi-button mouse, using the scroll wheel whilst holding down the right button will work in the same way as the trackpad.

Quite funky really!
