    I have the MBP Mid-2010 HR-AG 15" i7, and I installed the trackpad update when it came out. I loved the 3-finger dragging feature, which was such a great addition to my productivity, and I utilized it daily. For some reason, however, the feature stopped working.

    At first, when I would take 3 fingers and move them on the trackpad, the cursor would move as if I only put 1 finger on it.

    Then, I reinstalled the update, downloaded from Apples website. Now, when I put 3 fingers on the trackpad, the cursor stays still, but does not move the window.

    How can I re-enable the 3 finger dragging to work?

    No one knows? Would it work with BetterTouchTool or something?

    3 fingers for moving forward and back pages/webpages. Scrolling/zoom/photo manipulate is via 2 fingers. Move cursor and tap to click via 1 finger.
