    Hard to explain, But...
    Before the latest updates I used to be able to Double tap on my tackpad and hold on the second tap, I was then able to drag the window, select text ETC it was like the second tap was a click.

    This is now gone? would it have been the software update? Has anyone else experienced this? Apple Australia is closed so I can call till Monday :(

    SOLVED --

    Thanks to Chundles

    Had the same issue, much nicer with it turned back on.

    Whoah at last! Was this in 10.7.1? Always annoyed me that double tap and drag worked on my old mbp but not on my new MBA.

    Cheers!
