    Hey, just bought a 2016 15" MBP and am having an issue with the 3 finger drag. Since enabling, it works about 50-60% of the time. Its strange because it works at times on one window, and not others, and sometimes not at all. Anybody else have this turned on and experience this? It is in accessibility screen.

    Yep, this is an issue on all late 2016 MBPs.

    And there are at least 2 other threads on this. But I will say that I use 3 finger swipe for my entire LightRoom workflow. If this is buggy I'm going to have a big issue.

    It seems to be a bug with palm rejection.

    It works fine if you're already using the trackpad, but if you come from typing to straight 3 finger drag, you have to be right in the center and with the tips of your fingers rather than finger pads.
    I just disabled it.
