    My trackpad button only seems to register ~95% of clicks, sometimes it will not register a large number of clicks consecutively... but I'm guessing this is that unresponsive kb/tp issue people have been complaining about in Mavericks.

    Anyway... I'm used to dragging windows, sliders, etc with a double tap > drag > then release in Windows.

    Is there anyway to replicate this functionality in OS X... now I know in Accessibility > Trackpad> Options > Enable dragging without Drag Lock should do this BUT it doesn't do it properly.

    I double tap and drag/slide and it says locked for ~1.5 second, unless I tap again... this is extremely annoying.

    Is there a "secret" setting, config/preference file I can edit to reduce the lock to 0ms? Somebody programmed in that lock duration, so there has to be a way to reduce it.

    I want it to release the lock as soon as I lift my finger, not 1.5s later.

    Thanks.

    BetterTouchTool does dragging properly... even though it's marked as Experimental.
