    Just played with new rMBP and the new trackpad at an Apple Store. Love the haptic feedback and everything about how the new trackpad feels..

    But to my dismay - 3-finger drag option appears to be gone. I have been using 3-finger drag gesture on my trackpads for years, and don't understand why Apple decided to take it away.

    What does everyone else think about this? I can't be the only one using 3-finger drag.

    I love 3 finger drag, it's one of the first things I turn on when I do fresh install or get a new Mac.

    Strange that it's been removed.

    I hear you. They replaced it with a single finger force drag. Still getting used to it myself

    Well, good news is that this 3-finger drag option isn't completely gone. It's just been moved to Accessibility options - you have to go to Accessibility / Trackpad & Mouse menu to turn it on.

    +1. That was my only regret. This is a great find.
