    When you drag three fingers, it highlights the text. How do I disable that?

    You can select the way your trackpad works by going to system preferences / trackpad, and tick the options you prefer from there.

    Yeah, but there's no option for the three finger drag to select text. No tick to turn it off...

    Oh! I didn't realize that it controlled both moving windows and the highlight thingy.

    Thanks :)
