    Hi All....

    Am wondering if it is possible to set-up a keyboard (key-combination) that will simulate the 'left-mouse-button-hold' function ?

    In general ....
    I use a 23 in monitor and a remote keyboard in front of me, to type.
    I use the trackpad on my MBA (with right-hand) to control mouse movement.
    I have both screens active but primarily use the large screen in front of me

    But when doing a long drag-n-drop (say files from finder to trash) .... I currently use both hands on the trackpad (left-hand holds the left-mouse button, and right hand drags the item to trash).

    So I'd like to find a keyboard function that will allow me to perform a left-mouse-button-hold, using my left-hand on the remote keyboard in front of me.

    That would allow me to keep my left-hand on the remote keyboard, instead of reaching across with my left hand to the track-pad on the MBA, on my right side.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this ?

    Thanks in advance for your attention,

    You can use the 3 finger drag gesture right? (Check gestures under trackpad in system preferences)
