10.7: A text selection shortcut
Authored by: sugarquay on Aug 30, '11 08:06:29AM

I agree that Lion's three-finger dragging option is a ridiculously cumbersome way of doing things, and in fact it's the one option in Trackpad preferences I have switched off on all systems. Happily, good old one-finger dragging is still an option in Lion, albeit a bizarrely well-hidden one.

To reenable it, visit the Universal Access system preference, Mouse & Trackpad tab, and click Trackpad Options. Select Dragging (with or without Drag Lock), click Done and voilą - one-click dragging is back, for all your text selection and window repositioning needs.

Oh wow!

Thanks for this. Great find.

Worth 5 stars as a separate hint.
