Got my current iMac back in June. 2008. Love it of course. It came with the might mouse Bluetooth. At the time there were a myriad of complaints of the little scrol ball gunking up and no way to clean it like we could the old mouse balls. But I have never had any problems with it (been 3 years now) until lately. Now it doesn't wantto scrol down and s jerky in doing that. Normally I can scrol with the arrow buttons in documents or the web but in Photoshop I have it configured to zoom the image view with the scrol wheel. I almost can't work with out that feature after so many years doing that.
So, first, is there any way to clean the blame thing
Or second. Option of getting a new mouse. After all, this has served me as long as any other mouse has so getting a new one would be okay.
In doing that, how does the Magic Mouse work in Photoshop ? Those who use it. Does the Magic Mouse give good control in painting and selecting in PS? Any issues.
Also, I am still in Snow Leopard. Will it work in that system?
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
Any sort of alcohol is the worst thing you can use to clean it... it dries it out and eventually makes the problem worse. Canned air, or just a damp cloth will do the trick for a while. But as many people have come to realize, the Mighty Mouse is second to the Hockey Puck mouse on the "this thing sucks, did Apple really make this?" scale.
