default keyboard shortcuts require mouse on non-mouse platform

Bug Description

The default "keyboard shortcuts" used alt-left mouse drag and alt-right mouse drag for moving and resizing the window. This is not possible on laptops with touchpads. The defaults should be set appropriately to match the available input methods, and the text should not refer to an input method that isn't available on this hardware. (on this particular hardware, alt-click is possible, and does move the window, but alt-tap drag does not work. Most users won't know the difference, so if this is going to be the default, it should work with alt-tap drag. It would be great if you could use alt-pinch to resize a window).
