After a couple of hours setting up Sammy, the main problem seems to be the difficulty feeling the edge of the trackpad. If my fingertip strays too far, the mouse pointer stops because I’m not actually on the trackpad any more.
Has anyone else noticed this? Any solution? Does it get better as you get used to it?
My solution is to get used to the trackpad, change the setting to the highest possible sensitivity in Control Panel. I cannot feel the edge either, but I have not had any problems getting used to it. I actually quite like it and I really do not think it is too small.
I’ve had trouble with this too – sometimes I wonder why the cursor isn’t moving and it’s because my finger has left the touchpad! 😀
I think it has become better with use as my mind gets used to where everything is. That said, I use an external mouse, so I don’t use it very often.
Yeah, it is the biggest complaint I have about the NC10. The pad itself should be recessed further. I cut up a thin strip of a sticker and put it between the trackpad and button and it seems to help quite a bit. But is quickly wearing out so I’ll have to find a better solution.
For me – the most important thing of all is to set the pointer speed to fast, there’s lots of options in the mouse settings but the one I’m talking about is here
control panel > mouse >pointer options > motion = fast
Once I did this, no more problems because the touchpad easily gets you from one side of the screen to the other.
I find myself going off the pad all the time. But as said above, in time you get used to it. You soonget a good feel for where it is instinctively. Well I hope you will anyway!
a good solution to this would be to find some sort of thin strip of sticky rubber and make an outline of the touchpad…
or even a bit of really small gauge wire glued into the rim of the pad might do the job…
surfing at night is a pain cos you cant feel the edge of the pad
my only real gripe, would also be nice if the casing was matt finish like the IBM thinkpads
