    There is no "clicking" with the new trackpads. You need to make sure three finger drag is selected by going to system preferences then trackpad and check the box that says three finger drag the close it. Now when you need to highlight sentences of paragraphs you can simply drag using three fingers over the text you want.

  • You can highlight items the same way you can with a mouse, by clicking on them. You right-click by using two fingers to click—make sure this is enabled in your preferences. Also, I strongly recommend reading the manual.
