Can it be used on a soft surface, such as a bed or pillow? Will a click register, since the little feet might not compress?

    Yes you can use it on a soft surface. You will need to go into the Track Pad Preferences and configure it to detect the double tap gesture as a mouse click. Once that is set, you won't need to have it sitting on a hard surface to click or click and drag on items. I don’t personally like the “feet” click feature so I choose not to use it.

  • You can use the "Tap to Click" option to get around having to make the trackpad's real bottom-mounted buttons actually click.

    Note:
    I'm a long time MacBook Pro trackpad user and have always used "Tap to Click", "Dragging", and "Drag Lock" options in their ON modes. It's just too hard to make the trackpad work effectively without using them.
