Prevents accidental canvas rotation on recent Apple trackpads.
On MacBook Air and recent MacBook Pro systems, Adobe Photoshop CS4 reads multitouch gestures to rotate of the document canvas. But it's easy to accidentally rotate the canvas on newer trackpads.
To address the problem, Adobe has released a plug-in that disables the multitouch gesture for canvas rotation and the gestures for zooming and flick panning. Canvas rotation remains available through the Rotate View tool and Photoshop is otherwise unaffected by the plug-in, the company said.
The 64K download is available only for OS X.
