Magic Mouse scrolling too Sensitive Under Sierra

Rick Thompson
Newcomer
Has anyone (who uses a Magic Mouse) noticed that after installing Sierra the scrolling acts like it is on steroids? I turned the "inertia" off, but still, the scrolling is so fast and dramatic is it hard to use. I might need to go back to MagicPrefs (assuming that would help?), but maybe I am missing something. Other apps seem fine, but scrolling in AC is bad.

I have no problems with Sierra at home, but that's using a logitech gaming mouse with its own drivers in other software.

We haven't updated to Sierra yet in the office, waiting for the NL update to ArchiCAD first.

You are running the update to ArchiCAD I assume? http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=53762

I use Better Touch Tool instead of Magic Prefs and noticed the problem. My solution was to deactivate the setting in BTT that increases the speed over the one in the Mouse regular Preferences and only use the last to control the speed. Since then it has behaved almost correctly.

I will get Touch Tool.. thanks. Yeah, MagicPref does not give scrolling options. I thought you could configure per app. But, so much for my memory:) I am running the update, and I filed a bug report. Thanks for the conformation.

My Apple Mouse on iMac with no third party drivers is suffering from hyper scrolling after upgrading to Sierra last night. From what I can see on the net this is more app specific than Sierra. Scrolling in ACLT and many other apps including this forum in Safari is still smooth but AC20 is jumpy and bad on the eyes!! I did do what is described as a SMC reset which basically requires pulling the mains from the wall before doing a reboot, it helped slightly but still not good. Think GS need to be looking at an urgent hot fix. I am running the Sierra approved AC20 build 4012 UKI Full.

Not sure if this is linked K...

After several hours with the same drawing open AC20 is also developing a significant lag on scrolling. I can switch views and everything else seems to operate at reasonable speed but trying to scroll either becomes unresponsive or ends up accumulating several scroll attempts and then jumping to far in whatever direction.

I'm having the same problem, bugs me so much I check for an update every time I open AC. Please please get the fix out asap. It is painful to use the magic mouse with AC20 & OS Sierra.

This is a bug that affects almost every move & click in ArchiCAD.

Please please get the fix out asap

I'm sure AC used to zoom smoothly pre-Sierra, in AC19 & 20 I'm still getting step jumps with the Magic Mouse scroll, the view doesn't go shooting off as much, but I still find the jumping views uncomfortable.

If you set your zoom to 1000% and then try scrolling the view will only step to either 1200% or 833% there's no smooth stepping in between. The same ratios apply at 100% and probably all other values as well.

So far it seems that ArchiCAD behaves with the logitech mice we have in the office on the macbooks in Sierra, so if you have any USB mice lying about, that could be a temporary fix for you until the fix is implemented.

Personally I prefer the logitech MX over the apple mice, I have small hands, but I still find it too small to hold comfortably and I prefer a clunky wheel over the tiny apple bump-thingy. But this is of course personal preference, but for once it has its benefits! 😉

I also have a logitech mechanical keyboard that rattles like a machine-gun when typing, maybe I'm just old-fashioned in input device taste.

Both are very durable as well, I've had them for years without any signs of wear. The mouse was replaced after 10 years of use, because the mouse wheel had accumulated enough grit and dirt that I just wanted a new one.

I was using an MX mouse but the drivers became unstable a while back so I went out and got a magic mouse. Having just considered your suggestion and picked the MX up from the other side of the room (not where I threw it!) I have to say it feels like a brick in comparison to the MM and the mechanical scroll wheel feels so archaic.

Thanks for the suggestion but I think I'll tough it out for now, we must be due an AC update soon...

Well, I wonder what the fix will do since it seems fine after the last Serra update for me.
