Horizontal scroll gets stuck


#1

When scrolling horizontally with two fingers on a MacBook trackpad, the window doesn’t scroll smoothly but often catches and stops scrolling, requiring you to start a new drag.

Yeah same here. It would be amazing if horizontal scrolling could be made smoother on macbook!

Same issue here in OSX Mavericks. How does the priority of bug is decided? Is it on the likes or there is a voting system available to prioritise this?

It would help if we could get some information from you on this:

  1. Which version of Atom are you using?
  2. Can you reproduce this with atom --safe?
  3. Is there any other information you can supply?

I’m using OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 on a mid-2011 iMac and have no issues with horizontal scrolling. There is a slight stickiness when getting started from absolute left, but that is to be expected to prevent accidental horizontal scrolling when scrolling vertically.
