Users Report Problems With 3 Finger Drag On New MacBook Pro


As is the new MacBook Pro doesn’t have enough bad press, comes the news that users are reporting that the very useful 3 finger drag gesture doesn’t work. Apple’s support forums have a thread that shows that this seems to be happening to a lot of people who opt to enable the gesture. Apple technicians have apparently acknowledged the issue and suggested that a fix would be required via a future macOS Sierra update. Or at least that what users on the forum say.

Now to be fair, very few people use the three finger drag. And all of those users tend to be long time power users of OS X or macOS. Plus Apple for reasons that only know bansihed this feature to the Accessibility settings in System Preferences in macOS Sierra. Thus new users to the platform would likely never see this issue. But for those who do use this feature, and I am one of them, a fix for this cannot come soon enough.
