Drag and swipe features fail to work
In spite of the relative newness of the Magic Mouse, some complaints have begun emerging on Apple's support forums. Anticipated drag and swipe functions are sometimes said to be failing, leaving only regular click commands available. When the special wireless mouse software is applied, a Mac may still fail to detect a Magic Mouse.
Some users suggest the problem is due to a conflict with other System Preferences panes, and removing the offending software may fix the problem. Specific culprits are said to include third-party offerings like the Logitech Control Center, Microsoft Keyboard and USB Overdrive. The problem has nevertheless persisted for some users, regardless of whether or not they are fully up to date. Apple has yet to formally acknowledge the problem or post a solution.
