    Hi,

    I just updated my mid-2014 MacBook pro 13" to Sierra and all the three-finger gestures (like swiping between spaces) no longer work, even though they're enabled in the system preferences. They're just recognized as the corresponding two-finger gestures.

    I already tried to reboot. :X

    Is there a way to fix this?

    I noticed the 3 finger tap for preview (like space bar) was not working. It was unchecked on one of the tabs under trackpad prefs.

    I've noticed the same. Anyone seen a fix yet?

    I went in and unchecked everything in trackpad, closed it out, then opened it and rechecked everything. It seems to be working now.

    Unchecking didn't work for me, but I found a fix.

    Just go to the trackpad settings and change all the swipe gestures to four fingers and then change them back to three fingers.
