I wish that Accordance was more TrackPad friendly.

Many of us notebookers long ago trashed our external mouse, using only the TrackPad. And, most of us TrackPad-only notebookers have also enabled double and triple clicks on the TouchPad; we no longer use the single button. Moreover, the new TrackPads have exciting two and three finger scroll functions.

My wish for Accordance:
full compliance with TouchPad mouse clicks (single, double, triple, click-n-drag, click-n-hold, and so fort)
innovative use of two and three finger scrolling

Why should Accordance put effort into these features?

Simple: look where Apple growth is coming from! Notebooks. With more and more notebook users, how about making Accordance as TrackPad friendly as possible!

Developers, try this: use Accordance on a notebook sans mouse. Use only the TrackPad with Pad-clicks enabled. You'll soon see be converted.

Thanks for listening.

The one missing mouse pad feature is TRIPLE CLICKS using the Track Pad (i.e., not the mouse button).

Accordance recognizes DOUBLE TAPS = DOUBLE CLICKS, but it does not recognize TRIPLE TAPS = TRIPLE CLICKS.

Wishing thanks for listening.

SteveL,

Triple Tapping works for me on my MacBook Pro running Accordance 8.0.2 under Mac OS X 10.5.3.

Scott, wish I could report the same. After fussing with it, I can only say that it works infrequently (I tried various speeds, intensities, etc.)

Steve,

So if I understand you correctly, it is only sporadically working? I wonder if your trackpad preferences are different from mine. Here is a screenshot of the trackpad preferences on my MacBook Pro. Perhaps you could post yours so I can set mine up the same and see if I can figure out what is going on.




Thanks,

Scott.

Scott,

I'm on a MacBook Air, so the preference settings differ, as does the mouse driver, or so I'd imagine. This probably explains the differences noted in the behavior of a triple tap. Thanks for trying!!
