I have the trackpad on my Macbook pro set up to scroll to top/bottom on a 3-finger vertical swipe. As far as I can tell, that option isn't there for a Magic Trackpad.

It's very confusing to have both devices behave differently on the same gestures. Is there a way to fix this?


My Magic Trackpad did this right out of the box. I believe you should select "Swipe to navigate."

    Yes, the setting is there but it doesn't seem to work in all applications. It works in Firefox (on most pages), but not in Chrome, for example. – Lizzan Oct 9 '10 at 13:06
  • @Lizzan: That might be an application specific issue. I'm guessing it maps to the "Home" and "End" keys, perhaps Chrome doesn't recognize those? – Josh K Oct 9 '10 at 22:24
  • I would have thought so too, but it seems it's not that simple. "Home" and "End" work in Chrome, three-finger swipe doesn't. – Lizzan Oct 10 '10 at 7:01
  • @Lizzan: it's because Chrome does not support the up and down 3 finger swipe. It support left and right (back and forward). You can't do it on a macbook touchpad either. – Robert S Ciaccio Oct 11 '10 at 20:31
  • Turns out it does work, but I was using Chrome most of the time to test it. – Sietse Oct 18 '10 at 8:45
