Im­prove your Mac’s con­trols

SPEED UP US­ING YOUR MAC WITH NEW MAGIC MOUSE AND KEY­BOARD SHORT­CUTS.

TechLife Australia - - WELCOME - [ CRAIG GRANNELL ]

THERE IS UN­TAPPED po­ten­tial in your in­put de­vices. Luck­ily, this can be un­leashed us­ing Bet­terTouchTool. In this is­sue, we’re out­lin­ing how it can power up your key­board and mouse.

Once you’ve opened Bet­terTouchTool, it’ll ap­pear in the menu bar. Click its icon and choose Pref­er­ences to open the con­fig­u­ra­tion win­dow. Un­der­neath the tool­bar, you’ll see tabs that de­tail in­put meth­ods you can tai­lor.

As you start ex­per­i­ment­ing with ac­tions and ges­tures, you will quickly find out how pow­er­ful – and use­ful – that Bet­terTouchTool can be. Avoid ges­tures you’re not com­fort­able per­form­ing, and cre­at­ing short­cuts that clash with ex­ist­ing ones in apps you use. (If nec­es­sary, re­strict where short­cuts work by us­ing the App Spe­cific side­bar item.)

You can get a 45-day trial from fo­livora.ai. A two-year li­cence costs $10; a life­time one costs $31. It’s also avail­able on sub­scrip­tion from Se­tapp.
