With a mouse or trackpad, we can double-click in text to select an entire word. If we hold the pressing of that second click, and then drag, we can select a series of entire words in most text editing places in most apps on macOS.
Is there a way do the same effect (selecting a series of whole words) on a trackpad without the physical clicking, using only touches and taps?
(I want to give my thumb a break from that downward-pressure repetitive motion.)
Using Apple Magic Trackpad 2 or MacBook Pro built-in trackpad, with macOS Sierra.
I tried each of the Answers on this similar Question. But none of them work. They seem to be outdated, from the Mac OS X era rather than macOS times today.
