That feature is so poorly implemented - I don't know how anyone can use that well. If they implemented it as a 'second finger tap,' it would be viable, but as it is, you need three fingers to right click, and that's just awkward to do. (I tried it out, and found it pretty awkward to try and hit the button with my thumb while putting my index and middle finger on the pad. It's honestly quite a bit easier for me to just hit 'control' with my left pinky while clicking with my thumb or tapping with my index finger.) It should be that you hold one finger on the touchpad for positioning, and use the other finger to tap. I believe they use this chord to handle scrolling instead. :-/
