I received two questions from readers following my previous posts and it is a good idea to share the answers.
I'm impressed by LaunchBar, but I don't want it to swing into action when I'm coding in eclipse and use cmd-space for autocomplete.
In my case, I simply use double cmd tap for activating LaunchBar instead of the cmd-space combo. I got used to it from QuickSilver and it works best for me. Two quick thumb clicks and the cmd and LaunchBar is here to assist.
To change it, open the LaucnhBar preferences → shortcuts. Disable the cmd-space for "Search in LaunchBar". Enable the Modifier Tap for "Search in LaunchBar" and select "Double Command".
Next, Alan asks:
I use Mac SL, fully updated, with Eclipse 3.6 Helios updated. I have trackpad and magic mouse and when scrolling the editor of eclipse, it's so choppy, while scrolling navigator or outline windows it's much smoother.
For the Magic Mouse, I'm using Magic Driver, which I personally recommend. It lets you set the sensitivity of the scroll and can be customized per application. Their site claim that it does not support the Magic Trackpad (it should, soon, hopefully) and I don't know how it will affect the built-in trackpad. I have an older MacBook Pro, without the multi-touch trackpad, so it works fine.
I know that BetterTouchTool can control that, but I don't think the settings can be customized per application. I wouldn't install both of them, though.
If you do encounter the same problem, do give the Magic Driver a shot. Let me know how it works for you. If you have a different solution, feel free to share.
