keyboard shortcuts - Universal Access Zoom In/Out - elementary OS Stack Exchange
This still seems to work in Loki (0.4)--but is sometimes flaky?.
By default, elementary OS has a magnifier that can be used by pressing ⌘++ to zoom in and ⌘+- to zoom out.

Note that ⌘ refers to the "Super" key, which on your hardware might have a Windows logo, an Ubuntu logo, or the word "Command".

Mac OS X Maverick: Re-enable Tap and Drag on a Trackpad or Touchpad | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial
Prior to OS X Lion, you could tap and drag to select text, move icons and windows in any app where you had to select items. For power users, this is a very handy feature and is useful for those users with Macs that do not have a multi-gesture capable touchpad or trackpad.

1. Go into Preferences.

2. Go to Accessibility.

3. On the left pane, go down to Mouse & Trackpad.
