Hi all,


Searching the forum and on Google, I found some old discussions about older versions of Filemaker (14 and 15) but wasn't sure if it was quite the same problem that I am experiencing, so I have started a new thread. Sorry if this is old news.


I cannot scroll down a list view layout using trackpad 2 finger scrolling and I've had complaints of this from users of my solution too.


My experience has been:

Acer Spin1 laptop running Windows 10 (Filemaker 16)

- Cannot scroll list view layouts with 2 finger trackpad scrolling (which is turned on in Touchpad Settings and works in other applications)

- Other methods of scrolling work (using touchscreen dragging, dragging the scrollbar to the right, using a wireless mouse scroll wheel)

- Trackpad scrolling works in other contexts, eg scrolling in a portal or down a large field


Macbook running Windows 7 via Parallels Desktop (Filemaker 16)

- 2 finger trackpad scrolling works fine


It's quite inconvenient. Someone please tell me I'm an idiot and there is some simple setting that I have missed!
