I was eager to try out a Bluetooth mouse with my iPad and Lightroom, since mouse/trackpad support is finally here. In iPadOS 13.4, the mouse scroll wheel works in most apps, but won't let me scroll through my photos in Lightroom. Is there an update that will add this functionality? Can trackpad users confirm the same issue in the app?

Yes, with Magic Trackpad 2 you have to use 2 fingers like in Apples Photo App, but you have to press in addition, which is not nice.
In folder view on left side you can scroll with press using 1 finger, but can very likely move a folder to a new place.
Please Adobe fix this!

The mouse/trackpad support is so broken in Lightroom right now, which is a major dealbreaker. Basic things that work in all other apps don't work in Lightroom. Looks like the team didn't use any native iOS components but they were al custom made.

Please support Magic Keyboard trackpad for iPad, Adobe. There is some serious work to be done to make this a good user experience on iPad Pro.

This feature was added in today's release, but the implementation is incredibly half-arsed. Honestly Adobe please stop using this rubbish custom collection view for something as crucial as the image collection.

Some annoying usability issues:
Inertial scrolling does not stop when two fingers are tapped on the trackpad, inertia is totally off, accidental "tap" gestures when someone tries to stop the scroll.
