Scroll Direction

Post by The Rabbits » Tue Feb 23, 2021 4:21 am

Is there a way to get Live to respect the scrolling settings of the OS?

I'm using trackpads as well as a mouse so I've changed to "Content tracks fingers" on both. But Live ignores the setting. As I move from one device to another constantly and often switch to other applications, this is getting fairly annoying.

I have to scroll one way in Chrome then remember it's the opposite in Live. If I use the Max device for adjusting controls with the mouse wheel it's insane.

If not inside Live, does anyone know of a 3rd party option for setting this up?

Looks like they fixed it in v11.

It's not fixed in L11. It's actually a bug that the direction is reversed. It's not following the OS setting, it's just currently reversed.

The direction matches my Windows settings now, so I wouldn't call that a bug.
Might I assume they're going to break it again?

So they "fixed" it!
And they managed to screw up the scrolling in other applications! Excellent effort all round.

And somehow did it without sending an update. Reaching out to touch people's files is hacking.

And it went away again.
Wonderful, every time I scroll I have to try both ways.
