Description Tim Apple 2018-09-22 02:33:21 UTC
SUMMARY: Change "Mouse Click Emulation" to "Tap to Click" or somthing similiar. I believe most people look for Tap to Click when looking to turn it off. Existing wording is confusing and makes it difficult for users to find.

Nate, do you agree? It's an easy fix.
Comment 2 Nate Graham 2018-09-22 15:35:26 UTC
I was really hoping this old interface would be phased out by now (see Bug 387153), but since that hasn't happened yet, I agree that changing the string here to a more user-friendly term makes sense. You wanna make the change, Scott?
