Recent switcher also finding mouse not smooth
Hi I'm new to this forum site.
I know there is a switcher section but couldn't find a mouse thread within there.
I've recently switched to a mac and did some research on a mouse problem I'm having and at first it appeared I was suffering from the differences in Mouse Acceleration or Mouse Tracking between Mac and Windows that is identified in many forums and websites.
But I now believe that my problem is something different (or maybe its related but not exactly the same) to the mouse acceleration issue.
When I use a PC the mouse moves smoothly. When I use my new macbook (using a USB microsoft mouse) its a tad jumpy. This jumpiness is annoying in Photoshop and general usage.
I have played with the speed settings and also tried USB Overdrive, MouseFix, MouseZoom, Steermouse, which all seem to solve the Acceleration problem but not the smoothness issue.
If I lower the speed of the mouse tracking, it is much smoother, but then it doesn't move fast enough. If I raise the tracking speed or acceleration speed, the jerkiness returns.
I see that the 2 issues are related but I think they are different.
Can anyone shed light or better yet, offer some suggestions to solve my irritating problem?
I don't think I should have to buy a new mouse just because of this. A MS mouse should* work on a mac I would think.
Thank you very much.
