Summary 0003995: Trackpad on Macbook unusable in any mouse model so far
Revision 2019-06-17 06:21 by Kunda1
Description Hi all,

My trackpad and FreeCAD don't get along :(

None of the two-finger things (pan, pinch to zoom) behave as I would expect, and it makes it almost impossible to use FreeCAD on my normal platform.

('Gesture mode' as is suggested doesn't work at all well for me)

(If lack of mac is the root cause, I'd be happy to loan one! Good luck DeepSOIC/all)

I think this may also be related to 0002437 but that's listed as a 'minor feature request' on 0.15. This is a showstopper for me using FreeCAD.

I've captured two videos with the default settings, and I'm not seeing what I would consider 'expected behaviour' with my trackpad, and none of the mouse models make it much more useful.

You can see what I see here with only very minor finger movements in each case.

It 'should' behave (I suppose?) as described here: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/user-interaction/mouse-and-trackpad/

Maybe setting some zoom multiplier would help it not be so wild, but the gestures are being interpreted incorrectly, as well as being too fast.

The 'Gesture' model looks the most correct on the mouseover, but it seems that the two finger gestures are being picked up as scrolling (or something?) rather than the gestures they are.

Thanks for all your hard work crew, it's come a long way!!
