Inverted scrolling

As much as I find the idea of the "natural" scrolling that's part of OS X Lion to be very odd, I think I would like to give it a try. Does anyone have a suggestion to invert the scroll up/down directions via the MultiTouch Utilities?

I'm surprised to hear this question coming from you -- I would imagine it's a fairly simple task?

I would try finding the four-finger swipe-up or swipe-down in the default configuration and edit the action associated with the gesture, just pick the opposite direction for each gesture. I'm sure you already tried that though?

I haven't got the FW software installed (damn you, Windows 7) so I can't confirm my assumption. But I hope it will work!

Heh.

You'd think it'd be that easy, but it's not. The right hand, 4-finger swipe up/down is mapped to an Event Macro named "Scroll" with an action of "Mouse Pointer". I can't even make a new Event Macro that will work like "Scroll". I'm curious if anyone has actually tried this before and had any ideas. I'm not even sure where to start.
