    I love the three finger drag on mac trackpads. Is there any way to do this on the Magic Mouse? ie Lay three fingers on the mouse and instantly drag just like on a trackpad?

    I know there is the doubletap+pause-then drag (drag lock) but this is a lot slower and cumbersome than fingersdown-fingersup. I have BetterTouchTool but I don't see any option for three finger drag on Magic Mouse unless I'm missing it.

    How would that work on the Mouse? Sometimes I find even the Trackpad area too small for me to drag things around.

    I guess I should have been clearer. Basically lay three fingers on the surface of the mouse and then move the mouse normally to drag. I don't know about you but I my ring finger is always on the side of the mouse, so you would simply move the ring finger to contact the top and then it would function like a drag. It would be even better than the trackpad 3 finger drag because you'd have all the room you normally have with the mouse to drag around.

    Clicking the mouse and dragging it isn't enough?

    This, why complicating something so simple ?

    Because dragging/etc without holding the mouse down is great if you have any kind of rsi. If it's such a useless idea then why did Apple bother making it a default for the trackpad (or touch clicking in general)? Both have the same touch hardware so I'd like to do the same action on both.
