comment How does double-tap to drag work?
@Tetsujin no, on further experimentation, after double-tapping, click-dragging doesn't drag the window, no matter how long I wait. only after i try to click-drag and release can i then try again and succeed at the drag actually happening.

trying this on a window... once i quick double-tap, click-drag doesn't actually drag. i seem to be locked out of dragging for about a second.

Yes, three fingers works, but isn't helpful, because I need to be able to lift my fingers off the trackpad from time to time before the operation is complete.

comment Holding the mouse button automatically on OSX
I have enabled "Dragging (with Drag Lock)" but when i double-tap, nothing happens. It's as if the left mouse button isn't being held down at all!

comment Login directly to terminal instead of GUI
I tried this in 10.8.5, and the screen flashed gray then the login screen returned. No lockup. But being able to log in without a password seems like a security hole.

This seems like a security hole to be able to get a prompt with no password...

@Nit I tried this on 10.8.5 and the screen just flashes gray for a second, and then shows the login prompt again.

@DanielLawson sorry, that should have been addressed to you.

comment What are some great OS X Dropbox uses?
I'll tell you what it's NOT good for... syncing server files. Mainly, because for some weird reason (unlike under Linux) you actually have to be logged in and have an Aqua session for Dropbox to even run.

I wonder, is there some way to only disable the external drive from sleeping?

comment What features of Yosemite are beneficial to you?
How is this question closed as "too broad" when it is practically identical to apple.stackexchange.com/questions/106036/… except for the change from Mavericks to Yosemite? (I found this question searching for it after finding the Mavericks question useful!)

comment Mavericks theme for Yosemite
Themes seem to be like fads, and it is slightly rude that new OS versions don't give you the option to switch to previous themes.
