    I could have swore I used to be able to double tap the title bar on anything and it would lock on to it so I could drag it around the screen.

    Is this feature no longer used or am I missing something?

    It's a setting in System Preferences->Trackpad, but I can't remember exactly which one as I've not got my Mac to hand

    I've looked in the trackpad preferences and I have everything checked except for natural scrolling and 3 finger drag. I don't see a setting for double tap and drag but the only thing left was the 3 finger drag and it does what I essentially want but its different from the past.

    Maybe they got rid of the that double tap and drag and this replaced it?

    I believe you have to do two things.
    1st Preferences > General > uncheck to minimize window if double clicked.
    2nd preferences > accessibility > trackpad options > dragging

    Thanks but the 1st preference is one that I like even more. But I tried it anyway and it WORKED even without unchecking the minimize window if double clicked!!!!

    Thanks!

    Ah, yes, your trackpad prefs are different to mine as mine is an older MBP that doesn't support 3-finger gestures!

    Time to update to a new one then!!! haha

    My MBP was bought about 3 years ago and it has been fantastic and I don't see any reason to update. I did however install a solid state hard drive in it with 8gb of ram and this thing is awesome!

    Thanks though!

    I intend just as soon as Apple actually put them on sale. My wife can't wait either as she's having this one :)
