3.0.2 purchased MAS - bug exists

It appears that the program cannot select data properly on my macbookpro retina running 10.8.2. I'm trying to data-mine a black and white decent resolution graph from a journal article, and currently the system is no-go. Selecting data in the white of the image, not on the data-line. Using masks only ends up with data that is at the center of the mask (ignores actual line of data). Upon closing the document I noticed a weird version of the image in the window flash for a few seconds. I suspect the view of the image is different than the image being mined, and you're lucky if you happen to click on the proper portion of the image that the software has in it's head -v- what you can see. Contacted developer, we'll see what the situation is. May have to request a return of the software from apple.

BTW, I often suggested this software to my co-workers in the past, so previous versions had been working as far as I can tell. Current versions having difficulty.

MagicPrefs is fantastic!! Love it! Yes, everyonce in a while there's an issue with non-sensing, or a track-pad confusion, but it's as stable as any magic mouse software I've tried or more so! The functions are excellent.

And the best part about it? It supports PPC!!

(sadly only versions before this one! Why oh why drop PPC support?!?! :( please reconsider!)

Love it!!!

Disables track-pad click? - latest version for me disables the actual button and touch-click for the trackpad. G4 PPC, 10.5.8, 2Gig ram.

a bit of an update- the trackpad button and tap issue appeared to have disappeared upon restart, so it's intermittent. Will try and track it to see how often it happens- so far only once - could be a fluke. It does appear my slower processor = slower response to some clicks and gestures- I'm finding this problem with at least a few of these apps/pref-panes.

Does the demo mode only recognize the date it was installed and no total use? I can't demo the latest version because it thinks I've used it too long. [I haven't due to the lagging response earlier versions had.]

One of the few that work with 10.5 and PPC. [Thank you for that!!] I really like the window and layout, especially seeing the hot spots when activated.

I do however experience the following-
- perhaps a bit unresponsive to clicks- I can't figure out why, sometimes it listens, sometimes doesn't. perhaps other system calls are getting in the way? I can't tell...
- middle click doesn't seem to follow middle click behavior for programs like firefox etc. (middle click = open link in new tab, and close tab)- so maybe I'm just not getting middle click to work yet

I anxiously await the new versions and bug fixes! Cheers!
