    SERIOUSLY Frustrated with Macbook Pro Trackpad
    I am having some serious Macbook Pro trackpad issues. I CANNOT get it to select something in an image editor. All I am trying to do is crop a photo. I have had a Mac before, a four year old Pro. This new trackpad is driving me nuts. Any tips? I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Excuse my naivete if this is a stupid question, but I really can't work it out. My usually method for selected text doesn't work at all.

    Use a mouse?

    You can rest your thumb on the bottom of the trackpad. Then move your cursor with your index finger. This mimics the older MBP's track pads.

    I am not quite sure what you are having problems with, but I would suggest a mouse for any editing, games etc.

    Assuming that your trackpad is working properly, maybe you just need to get used to it..."practice makes perfect"!
