The three finger swipe left and right does not seem to work

I have been trying to do the left and right three finger swipe that allows you to move between applications to no avail.  It just keeps switching between dashboard and one app even if I have 5 apps open at the same time. Snow Leopard has this feature where all the apps opened are shown when you do the swipe and you can choose the one you want.  I think this is better but it doesn't work.
Any help will be appreciated.

Such spaces actually use very little extra memory relative to the apps you have open to occupy those spaces. I would go out on a limb and say it doesn't matter whether you have one space for every application or all on the same desktop.
The limitation will come from the applications and the data you are crunching on them.
(But that's just a personal view, haven't run into any limits on my ow 4GB Macbook Pro so far)

  • HT1923 I am using windows 7 and have upgraded itunes to 11. Now when I open my music library in itunes and click on a song it says "original file could not be found" Over 2000 songs come up this way and locate does not seem to work. Before the upgrade all

    With Windows 7 I upgraded itunes to 11. Now in my itunes library, when I click on a song "original file could not be found" comes up. This happens with over 2000 songs, but it seems to be ones I recorded from cd's. Locate does not seem to work. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Highlight a song that is supposedly missing, press CTRL+I to Get Info, say no when asked to locate the file, then look at the summary tab. Where does iTunes "think" the file should be? Where is it really? You may need to give a configuration file a minor tweak.

  • DBMS_TYPES with timestamp and interval does not seem to work.

    I have a PL/SQL script that seems to work for char,varchar,numerics, dates, but not for intervals. I basically took example code out of the Oracle manuals and stitched it together.
    The code in question is the function colTypeString. Apparently, interval is not being recognized as a type, so the function is returning back unknown. The documentation seems a bit spartan, so I thought perhaps you can help me out.
    Here's the code:
    create table interval_test( intym interval year(4) to month, intdm interval day(3) to second(4) );
    execute oraforum_pkg.desc_query( 'select * from interval_test' );

    The issue is that DBMS_SQL and DBMS_TYPES have different typecodes. Which means you can't interrogate the DBMS_SQL.DESC_REC using DBMS_TYPES constants. You could create yourself a package of DBMS_SQL_TYPES.

  • I bought the HP Envy 100 printer with my new Macbook Pro 13" and it does not seem to work with Lion.  Any suggestions?

    I bought my daughter a new MacbookPro 13" for grad school and selected the HP Envy 100 printer from the Apple Store website.  When I just tried to install the printer, it said that that the software was not compatable with Lion.  Any suggestions as to how to get it to work?

    Sorry, but the response just takes you to the HP site which is of  all possible assistance short of actual help!!
    HP (and Apple?) need to fess up and tell all the people who have HP printers when they will "just work" with their machines and OS X Lion.... because for many of us, they just don't! It isn't rocket science guys.... blithely telling us that downloading S/W updates from Apple doesn't help.... because they don't solve the problems!

    The table qq exists and I can see it, insert into it.
    I have got an error, when I declare a procedure with

    After changing %type to number I can compile.
    When I declare an anonymous block with %rowtype definition I am fine.
    According to the documentation %rowtype and %row are allowed in packages. Is it a well known bug?

    Do you have direct grant on the QQ table or is it role based?

  • Can articles swipe left and right?

    Is it possible to have articles swipe left and right instead of just up and down? From what I can see at the moment you swipe up and down in an article (multiple pages of course) and swipe left and right to change articles. I am trying to publish a gardening magazine and it has many 2 page images. When swiping and down they flow poorly.

    Set them to horizontal swipe only in the article properties.
