Macbook pro 13 TrackPad's 1 second drag release delay

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I have a macbook pro 13 (mid 2010). The one that really kills me is the delay when I'm trying to drag something with the trackpad, I lift my finger, and I have to wait a second for it to actually release whatever I'm dragging. I can see how this may be useful in some cases, but personally it annoys the hell out of me. I want it to release instantly and I can't seem to find a setting for this in the preferences. Am I missing something there? If I wanted this type of behavior I would turn on the "Drag lock" option. Anyone know if it's possible to get rid of this delay? Thanks.

its the default behaviour in all multitouch trackpads.

happens on all my machines.

just tap the pad once, when the window is positioned and then you can go on as before
