I myself have been dealing with this problem for at least 5 months probably longer and I AM SO TIRED OF DEALING WITH IT. Please fix this problem!!!!!
In the settings for Windows 10, you can reverse the vertical scrolling direction of the trackpad.
Normally, this has no effect on the horizontal scrolling direction. For example, in Illustrator and other programs, when you use two fingers to swipe left, the viewing area moves to the left (i.e. the document moves off to the right). This is the behavior of every program on the planet, Windows and Mac, except for Photoshop.
What happens now in Photoshop is that the horizontal scroll is also incorrectly reversed if you choose to reverse your trackpad's vertical scroll direction. This is clearly a bug as the behavior doesn't take place in any other Adobe products.
Someone mistakenly must have used the vertical reverse flag to also multiply the horizontal scrolling distance * -1. It's extremely annoying and counter-intuitive when trying to move around images. Please fix!
Here's a link to that bug:
I've recently upgraded to a new laptop and for some reason the horizontal scrolling direction in Photoshop is now the opposite to the old laptop I had and every single other windows app.
I've made this rushed video that I provided to Adobe customer support but they don't seem to know how to change this https://md28.in/v/e4p2euss.mp4
When I swipe left to right content should appear from the left of the screen. When I swipe right to left content should appear from the right of the screen. Currently left to right makes content appear from the right and right to left from the left.
I've tried reinstalling Photoshop but the issue is still there. It's fine in every other windows app and even other adobe apps. I just want it to function how my muscle memory is used to. Any help would be appreciated.
I like the product, I use it most of my waking day, but have considering looking at something else to work with. Do you see that Mr. Tranberry? I fill out those surveys that pop-up from time to time and read this forum to see what else is going on. To be honest, there is a lot written here which is outside my knowledge, but when we talk about scrolling; that is basic to the use of the product and shouldn't be tolerated. Photoshop is now crashing on me from time to time and I am totally bummed out.
I'm not giving up just yet, my advice is don't give up just yet, keep writing to this forum, fill out those surveys (I know for a fact someone at sometime reviews them), have your PC checked out, bug Adobe's Tech Support, maybe run a virus program (I did and nothing happened) and then maybe have a shot!
I'm still looking for an answer to my issues.
Natural setting: dragging two fingers towards the top left drags document content in that direction, while without it, dragging to the top left moves the content to the bottom right.
we do not have a switch for vertical only, that I know of.
It might be a case of preserving consistency...
So you expect to drag to the top left to move to the bottom left? I have a hard time to see where it can be natural.
