Smooth scrolling PLEASE!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make the scrolling smooth! This will make the experience infinitely better. Currently it's just awful on the eye to track where you're at while scrolling.
this happens on a ThinkPad too? I thought this was just an Apple touch/surface scroll issue.
Is this an issue will all touch surfaces?
I would really love to love Adobe Bridge but this issue makes it unusable on my ThinkPad (unless I use an actual mouse). I keep trying updates every few months to see if it's working, but I always come away sad. :-(
Please!! This is the only thing I don't like about Bridge!

Please enable smooth scrolling. I literally can't tell which direction I'm scrolling when scrolling through a folder of images. By smooth scrolling, I mean, don't jump automatically to the next full line of slides. The UX is not good as is.

Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase fix it :)
yep... 2021 version installed. Still infuriating to use.
Has anyone found a good alternative to Adobe Bridge yet?
I'm going to pitch it to Affinity.

January 2021, new Bridge version and the problem is still not fixed?
Shame on you, Adobe.
Still unusable with a Apple Magig Mouse 2. Pictures are jumping up and down like on an 80ies atari.
Maybe @adobe is waiting for 2021 to FIX Bridge. If they TRY to FIX BRIDGE is 2020, they might Blow it up.
Amazingly frustrating that scrolling in Bridge has not been fixed after at least a decade of complaints. I guess is Adobe's engineers just refuse to listen to users.
How can this STILL not be fixed? Makes Bridge completely unusable with a trackpad. People are asking for smooth scrolling in Bridge for years, and you seem to just ignore it. I tried Bridge2021 on two different Macbooks and the scrolling is still herky jerky and not improved at all.
The 2021 Update for Bridge just recently rolled out but the scrolling is still line wise when using a trackpad. At least on macOS. This might seem small but as one commenter pointed out, it is really hard to keep track when you have lots of similar images or videos and the view jumps. Sometimes I am not even sure if I scrolled upwards or downwards.
Is there anything we users can do? The functionality is there, dragging the scrollbar scrolls smoothly but hunting for it each time I want to scroll isn't really ergonomic or for a lack of a better word "2021".
I was told by an Adobe employee that this was going to be fixed in the next update... a few updates ago. I don't know if they think they fixed it and therefore checked off that box and never looked back or what. But I have yet to see any improvement. Still a pain in the ass to navigate with a mouse.
Thanks for bringing this up as I thought it was just my mouse and trackpad set-up.

I have the problem with scrolling as well. If you use the scrollbar, it behaves as expected, but if you use wheel/slider on mouse or a trackpad to scroll with cursor anywhere in the window, the display of thumbnails moves in huge steps, and depending on the situation, appears to be travelling in the opposite direction to the actual movement (because by chance the thumbnail gets drawn suddenly in a position that gives this impression). It should scroll smoother in all modes, less jumpy, to be less confusing.
I think the problem is to do with mouse/trackpad sensitivity (I tried with two mice on iMac and trackpad on MacBookPro , always the same problem), or.. a problem with how often the thumbnails position is redrawn in the window as it scrolls. Scrolling slowly using scrollbar seems like about 50-100 positions of thumbnail shown, whereas scrolling in window, the thumbnail positions are only updated maybe 3-4 times over the same distance.

What is going on here? Why are thousands of Adobe updates rolling out and Bridge still isn't scrolling smoothly!?
Good idea @datadaddy,
I thought that might've led me to a solution as well. I have Better Touch Tool, but I can't seem to find a way to force multi-finger scrolling on the mouse.
If anyone else has BTT and can figure that out, please let me know.
I have a nice workaround for this for trackpad users. First, enable three-finger drag on your mac. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204609
Then use three-finger drag as you hover over the scroll bar to the right of the thumbnails.
I was able to talk to a couple Tech people from Adobe about the scrolling issues. at least the ones that I have, which is in the Folders Pain using a Magic Mouse.
They are aware of my issue now... but don't seem to understand why or how it's happening. They were genuinely interested in trying to fix it, but I feel they may have dropped it again in favour of other issues?
Anyhow, I highly recommend you pull up a chat window with them. They are responsive now, and you get disconnected, they might even call you (if they have your number).
I have a few threads featuring how the scrolling hasn't worked at all for YEARS.
@ A. maybe you are suffering from a different scrolling problem that I am. In 2018 I don't get that dizzy feeling that the thumbnails are moving up when they are actually moving down.
