Hey guys!

So, I tried out Lion GM for a while now and overall impression is ok. The only really striking disadvantage is the touchpad configuration.

Do you know the option on SL to tap on a window/file and lock it to move the window/file? In Lion this option is gone. Only thing you can do is to use 3 fingers to move, which in my opion is a somehow unnatural gesture.

I got used to the new scroll behaviour, but another thing is the 4 finger pinch to open launchpad. I want more freedom to choose the gesture I like best. I know they want to create this user expirience bla bla, but I think it should be your choice what's best for your experience...

They included more gestures and dropped others... I don't really like that.

Any thoughts on that? Is there maybe a solution to solve the tap/lock/move thing!?

Best regards!

The "drag lock" setting is buried in Universal Access --> Trackpad Options. Seems this is the default cess pool where many options are ending up in.
