For those of you who are still having this issue, next time it happens - try this:

1) Select an EQ8 from the lib (or anything I guess, EQ8 was what I used)
2) Drag it on to the scrollbar
3) While still holding it on the scrollbar, right-click your mouse (which should cancel the action of placing the EQ8)

After this, mine stopped doing it - I have no way of re-verifying this so if anyone does have it happen to them, do let me know the outcome of this :)

Cheers,

Ok, so I think I've managed to verify that this occurs when you drag a new device (be it a live device or a VST or even a sample/wav) across the arrangement view/session view.. Live kicks in its automated scrolling so that the user can scroll to the point where they want to drop it.. Only sometimes you're not aiming to drop it in the arrangement view or the session view (but instead in the device chain for example) - it carries on the trend because I think it somehow loses track of where the cursor was at the last point.

My workaround above works to resolve in each case that this happens (or has done for me anyway) and I think the scrollbar is the 'if object is past this point, stop scrolling' trigger, I reckon we're perhaps flicking the mouse over the scrollbar too quickly for it to realise that we've done so, thus spawning the auto scroll bug.

Cheers,

Hi skimo have u passed this on to support? This is still happening occasion with 9.1.5b2 (previous beta) I'm gonna see if I can confirm. A project restart is enough to stop the behaviour for me.

I've experienced this multiple times with Live 9, & reported it here:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=205738

That thread was started in August 5, 2014.

This thread was started on April 1, 2013.

That's a long time with no apparent progress.

I have experienced this since the inception of live 9.
It usually happens when I drag in a max device.
Seems it is not exclusive to PC or MAC, or M4L devices.

I've not passed it on, no.. Feel free to do so if you've got a case on this already. It's not enough of an issue for me to want to burden them with, ultimately I just grab a device, hover over the scrollbar and the bug stops. :)

There's no doubt that it happens. But it's intermittent. If we can figure out exactly what triggers it, we'd be able to get it fixed.

HIya,
I've had this issue once in Live 9 and now with Live 10.1. It was in the middle of a gig so the workaround of quitting and re-opening was not option. I was not using a midi controller.
Using Live and apple plugins, M4L and Microsonic drum machine.
Operating at about 18% CPU.
Mac 10.13.6
Need a fix for this otherwise playing live with Live is risky. I'll try the swap from session to arrange and see if that works. And report back
Gail
