    I'm really not liking the idea of having to install a third-party workaround in order to restore a massively useful and time-saving feature.

     

    Oh no, I think Apple Feedback has a gripe on its way.

     

     

    Neither am I, but in the meantime if a third party workaround works, its better than losing the functionality altogether

     

     

    The 3 finger swipe in Finder window not working on Mavericks is apparently a bug, as its been present in every beta of Mavericks from what I got told elsewhere on another forum.

    I'm on a clean install.  No joy.

     

     

    Or well, if a clean install doesn't solve it, it is defintely a bug in Mavericks.

    Point well-made and well-taken, tal1971.

    I guess I'm a classic case of cutting my own nose off to spite my face and all that!

     

    I shall at least investigate this Better Touch Tool that you've recommended but in the meantime I've delivered my moan here:

    same issue. upgraded from Mountain Lion, before had no issue, and now i can't go back or forward with three finger. in fact, can't even use two fingers......

     

     

    I have a possible fix for the 2 finger scroll; I had a similar issue not being able to scroll at all in the Finder with both Trackpad and Mouse wheel. I used TinkerTool and Onyx to tweak some hidden OS settings (enabled Quit in Finder amongst others) and undoing the tweaks fixed my scrolling issues.

     

     

    So I am wondering if anyone else used 3rd party Finder tweaking that now possibly interferes with Maverick's Finder?

    Previous to updating to Mavericks, I was not using any 3rd party gesture tweaking software.

    I have also used Titanium's Onyx for a few little tweaks although I'm not convinced that's the issue.

     

    Unfortunately, Onyx is currently incompatible with Mavericks but the developers are working on it.

     

    I'll test your theory out in due course, Timbuktu.

    TinkerTool was just updated and works with 10.9. It will let you reset Finder to its default settings. As I said, it fixed my Finder issues which was not being able to scroll in any Finder window at all.

    AFTER TWO DAYS WITH APPLE SUPPORT I FIGURED THIS ONE OUT.  When you install Mavericks, it adds more gesture commands and changes three finger swipe to four finger to accomodate three finger drag. Anytime three finger drag is checked on the first tab of trackpad preferences, it auto changes swipe on the third tab to "four" fingers.

     

    Uncheck three finger drag on the first tab and then use the tiny pull down on swipe in the gestures tab and re-select "three" finger swipe. Remember, if you ever check the three finger drag on the point and click tab, it will atuomatically switch from three to four on the gestures tab for swipe.

    I have never had 3 finger drag checked and that work around did not work for me.

     

    The applecare engineer didn't know about this until I toild him. Then he googled it and found this thread!!!

     

    I asked him to report it but also as many people as possible need to send a bug report to apple as possible.

     

    Safari 2 finger swipe works the wrong way round for me - to go back, I swipe to the right. To go forwards, I swipe to the left. The oposite to what it did in 10.8 or before.

     

    So, swipe works....

     

     

    BUT NOT IN FINDER......Apple PLEASE FIX.

    I've never had the "three finger drag" box checked. Thanks for posting your suggestion

    I was having this issue as well, and I found that resetting the PRAM solved it.

     

    From Apple's support:

    To reset your computer’s PRAM:

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    3. Turn on the computer.
    4. Immediately press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.Continue holding the keys down until the computer restarts, and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    5. Release the keys.

    I have just tried to reset the PRAM on my late 2012 iMac, but when I press the Command-Option-P-R keys when I switch my iMac on, it just boots up normally to the desktop.

     

    I don't get the computer restarting or hearing the startup sound for the second time.

    Resetting the PRAM didn't do anything for me.  Still no swipe navigation in Finder.
