I sometimes accidentally trigger the horizontal swipe/scroll gesture on my magic mouse. Especially in X11/Inkscape, if I work zoomed in on a big canvas, this often moves my canvas several screens to the right or left and I have to carefully swipe/scroll back to my original view.
I would like to make the swiping more explicit by allowing only two finger swipes, which should then just work as vertical/horizontal scroll gestures, as if I had triggered them on a normal mouse (with 2 scroll wheels).
Preferences > Mouse > More Gestures > Swipe Between Pages (two fingers) does not help. I also already tried to map (globally) single finger swipes and scroll actions in Better Touch Tool (BTT) to
No Action. But they still work in all apps.
What else can I try, i.e., what other tools can I use or what other system settings can I change (via Terminal) to make it work?
System specs: Macbook Pro Retina, Magic Mouse, OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks), BTT 0.9985
Update: Please note that:
- I had been using BetterTouchTool version 0.9985 (as stated above)
- I also tried MagicPrefs (some older version)
If someone provides a detailed, convincing solution that solves the above problem, I will try to reclaim my now abandoned Magic Mouse, validate the solution, and gladly accept the answer.
