Mac: XnView MP almost unusable with Magic Mouse

Post by UrbanCoyote »

Hello,

So using XnView MP on a Mac with a Magic Mouse.
As this mouse has no scroll wheel but gestures, there seems to be a bug as when scrolling - XnViewMP moves at light speed/ way too fast.

I can accidentally slightly even touch the mouse when attempting to actually click but XnViewMP interprets this as a scroll and it go haywire.

Even when scrolling normally, it is way too fast. It seems it needs a 90% reduction in speed for scrolling when in the browser on Mac.
Tried it with a Logitech windows mouse too and the scrolling just is too fast.

Thanks

You may help slow the scrolling when using Xnviewmp by changing the following:

System Preferences>Accessibility>Pointer Control>Mouse & Trackpad>Mouse Options>"without inertia"

That's system wide though :(

I was able to fix this by deselecting the option that it scrolls automatically to the file selected.

It behaves now as expected and is consistent scrolling speed among all MacOs scrolling speeds now :)
