Photoshop, Lightroom Desktop, Lightroom Classic: Touchpad gestures on Windows 10 devices with precision touchpad

Gestures on the touchpad are currently notsupported in nearly all Adobe CC Apps, Photoshop being one of them. On Windows10, there is no way to scroll diagonally on a touchpad, nor can you use a"pinch to zoom (in/out)" gesture. Scrolling is limited to horizontaland vertical, but only one dimension at a time.

I'm using a Surface Book 2. With its touchscreen, I am ableto use these gestures. On the touchpad however, this isn't possible. 

My workflow is heavily slowed down by this. I've been using aMacBook before and all gestures were supported - why isn't that the case on Windows?

Microsoft provides precision touchpad drivers for many devices. These drivers create a greattouchpad experience on any device using them. It's the way forward for Windows10 laptops. 

I would love being able to use these gestures. They would speedup everyone's workflow significantly and create an ease of use I come to expectfrom all of the Adobe CC Apps.

In Adobe XD, these gestures are available. Lightroom CC (andClassic CC) support them too (They could be a bit smoother and more responsive inall of them though)

Illustrator and InDesign aren't supported too.


(I'm on the latest CC Version on all Apps - I'm on Windows 10Pro Version 1803 with all the latest updates)

Is this going to be implemented? I'm feeling like a second class citizen behind Mac users. This isn't rocket science.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled two finger gestures on touchpad (like macOS) on Windows 10.

i wonder if adobe will add the free pan with touchpad (two finger gestures like on macos) on windows 10.

If this doesn't make the CC 2020 release I'm going to be heavily disappointed.

This "feature" (more like basic functionality) is still absent from the new CC 2020!

Hey Adobe, you somehow forgot our wish from 503 days ago. Since you didn't bother with the issue I also got sloppy with the anniversary. Sorry about that. You've probably been busy counting money, but I can forgive you if you make up for it with a belated christmas present.

It is incredible that this basic feature in still not present in Adobe CC 2020.

I could do many simple Indesign works comfortably with the touchpad anywhere, correct photos in photoshop... but no, I have to sit at a table with a mouse in my hand.

If I have to urgently modify a document before a presentation, grab a mouse, if I want to quickly edit some photos on a trip, mouse...

I wouldn't mind if it was an operating system problem, it's my choice (or not) to work with Windows, but it's not the case, and in a commercial software like Adobe it's almost an insult.
