The four finger ‘Swipe between full-screen apps’ works intermittently and not as shown on MTP ‘More Gestures’. I meant moving back and forth between pages. The two finger ‘Swipe between pages’ (that slides the pages off to the side revealing the previous page) is working again. The three finger swipe is also working - a bit awkwardly though.  However, now, ‘Drag and Drop’ is flaky as hell and works only intermittently. It works well in some areas - not so much in others -...
YESSSSSS~! Great~!!!!!!!!!!! That works except for switching between windows. Now, both 1 finger AND 3 finger tapping works but in slightly different ways, For example, to grab header bar, 1 finger on header requires a double tap to grab it and another tap to let it go - while 3 finger requires only placing curser on the bar, no tap needed, and no need to tap it to let it go. However, two finger switching windows stopped working. The back arrow does, but that’s a pain, so...
OOPS!!  Mea culpa.   I've been saying TrackPad; I should have said Magic TrackPad.  I suppose that makes a difference.  I use the MTP with my iMac. I haven't installed Mavericks on my MBP, so I don't know if or how that'll affect a MBP TrackPad.    I have Quicken 2006 on the MBP; that won't work with Mavericks, so I probably won't install it until Intuit comes up with a new Apple compatible app - if I live that long.  With the iMac, I use Mint - which leaves something...
Weird~!!!!   After installing Mavericks, TrackPad was flaky.   Although I wasn’t able to get TrackPad to behave normally as before installing Mavericks, I found that using two or three fingers on the TP would accomplish what I want.  These work-arounds seem to work fine:   3 finger tap to place cursor; 1 finger tap works but not consistently and has to be repeated  several  times to place it.   To Drag & Drop: Cursor on the item;  3 finger tap to drag and drop that...
Is there a way to get Safari to warn that there are multiple tabs open, so that closing one doesn't close them all? Before upgrading to Mavericks, I used to get that warning.   I read: A work around might be to click History from the Safari menu bar top of your screen. From the drop down menu click Restore All Windows From Last Session. Unfortunately, Restore All Windows From Last Session is always grayed out and doesn't work.     What can Apple be thinking when it...
If that were the case, why did everything work correctly before I installed Mavericks?
I dislike Mavericks intensely; much of what I could do before doesn't work.  Most of TrackPad doesn't work.  Can't Drag and Drop; can't switch between windows; backspace; ad infinitum - ad nauseum.   Have reset PRAM; repaired permissions; repaired disks; rebooted numerous times; NOTHING helps; Mavericks is CRAP. I can't do what I need to do without jumping through hoops.  Wasted time and effort.  And who knows what other crap I'll run into.    Researching online shows...
I've tried changing TrackPad Preference settings and then changing back several times and have tried rebooting several times; no joy; however; tapping  icons on desktop, in dock, Tabs, and in Preferences does work. Scrolling works. I've spent so much time looking for a fix that I haven't tried most of other Maverick stuff.    Oddly, tapping will uncheck items in TrackPad Preference setting but NOT check them; they have to be clicked to check them. That may be where the...
Using Better Touch Tool as  a work around for moving and resizing a window. Can't find one for highlighting, inserting cursor, or editing sentences which I have to do a lot.
No luck trying to find an answer to tapping MTP  either online or Apple Support.  After ten minutes of having to click MTP, my finger is too sore and tired to continue. It takes numerous attempts to get the cursor on a button or whatever as it skitters away when I press on the MTP.   Tried using Magic Mouse. Worse.  Cursor goes in opposite direction that I try to move it.  I'm not referring to moving screen up or down.  Using MM, there is no way to get the cursor on a...
