Finally figured this out
Authored by: r-spx on Aug 31, '11 12:22:22AM

If you've a trackpad, go to System Preferences and click "Three Finger Drag". This isn't activated by default, at least not on my MacBook Pro (2009).

Although this says it lets you "move with three fingers", with the idea that you can move windows, it ALSO lets you drag with three fingers to select text. This is undocumented, but a nice tip in itself.

Once activated, the three-finger swipe to switch spaces is switched to FOUR fingers.

Seriously, this should all be explained in the tip. robg would have ensured readers wouldn't have been left so confused.
