I've noticed a lot of this going on from one Dev Preview to the next. Tap & Drag is now gone. I really hope it's put back!

Go to System Prefs > Universal Access and you can enable it there. This has been like this for the past build too.

Double-tap to select

I must be missing something easy -- I know the double-click to drag is gone, but what happened to the double click to select text?

I seriously don't know how to select text now with the tap feature on. Sad.

Edit: Oh, I get it -- three fingers is now select as well. We'll see whether I get used to this!

Thanks!

I find this a lot easier. Thought it had been removed when I saw no option in the trackpad preferences. It really should be added back in there, I am guessing that a lot of people will miss that feature & think they can't get it back.

While that is gone, you can always use multitouch, with the 3-finger drag.

3-figer dragging is great and all, but how do you use quick navigations? Example; 3-fingers forward and back to quickly navigate in all apps.

haha! i just posted about this on another thread...totally didn't know there was a thread about it. anyways...it's really uncomfortable to three-finger drag and highlight things. especially if you have big hands and your using a MBP or MBA. might as well get an external TrackPad hahaha!

Thank you very very much! While I could have gotten used to the three-finger drag, I didn't want to give up browser gestures for forward/back, which require three fingers on anything except Safari. I kept trying different configs of 2 or three fingers or both, but nothing gave me all the control I wanted. Now I have it again!

I'm already used to the "Natural Scrolling"... I just pretend it's a big iPad.
