      Summary

      FM11v4 OS X Lion Magic Mouse Horizontal Scrolling

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0v4

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.7.2

      Description of the issue

      In any open FM database, a horizontal scrolling gesture from a Magic Mouse will crash Filemaker, causing it to immediately quit.

      The problem is consistent and repeatable.

      There is no configuration option in OS X Lion for shutting off horizontal scrolling. The defaults edit that worked in Snow Leopard, is written to the Library Preferences file, but Lion ignores the settings.

      defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse MouseHorizontalScroll -bool NO

      Editing this file directly, allows changing the parameter from TRUE to FALSE, but is ignored.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Open an FM database. Perform a horizontal gesture on a Magic Mouse.
      FM crashes immediately.

      Expected result

      Horizontal scrolling of the screen

      Actual result

      FM Quits

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None

      Workaround

      MagicPrefs has a setting for removing the horizontal (AND diagonal)
      Once set to not allow horizontal or diagonal scrolling, FM does not crash.
