    Hi everyone,

    I used to enjoy the following shortcuts on Snow Leopard.
    - be working on a Pages document, need a picture on the desktop (or another place)
    -4 finger up to show desktop.
    -grab the object with my thumb, and with the remaining 4 fingers swipe down to activate Exposé, hold over the document, and one it opens, let it drop where I want it.

    In Lion 10.7.0 and 10.7.1, I managed to adapt to the following sequence
    -4 finger spread to show desktop
    -grab object with my thumb, 4 finger up to activate Mission Control, open Application, drop.

    With 10.7.2, I am unable to have an object selected+in mid drag and at the same time activate Mission Control.

    Any help?

    Hmm same for me. It still works if I press the expose button but it doesn't work with the gesture. So I will submit a bug report.

    This was one of the best features.

    When i had to drag a file from one finder window to something like a word document using the mission control gesture.

    But indeed when having a file selected, the gestures just don't work.

    Hope they'll fix it.
