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.

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.
@Ben i just went back to bridge 2018 and camera-raw 11 on mac as you pointed. did you mean this in relation to the scrolling issue? because it did not change anything :-/
I totally agree. I think what's happening is that instead of the rows of thumbnails scrolling continuously, they are jumping from row to row. As the new row enters the screen, it is a bit higher than the row it replaced, so it gives you the illusion that the rows are moving up. Makes me dizzy.
By the way, you can use Bridge 2018 alongside Creative Cloud 2020. You just have to overwrite Camera Raw 12 with Camera Raw 11 (available here: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html). Keep the installer handy, as you will need to do it every time you update Photoshop.
Yup my eyes feel like they have not idea which way I'm actually scrolling 2018 was a joy! 2019... Not Too MUCH! Please make it stop!!l
scrolling in the newest version with trackpad on macbook pro still doesn't work.
Indeed it's supersmooth on Mac and Apple Magic Mouse since Version CC 2019 9.1.
Great job! Thanks.
I can't put my finger on it, but the scrolling in Bridge 2018 feels normal and the scrolling in 2019 feels like I'm walking backwards on a treadmill. Are the relative rates of the scroll bar and the content different? Whatever it is, it is weird.
Can you please give an example of that you want to be improved. I have no idea of what kind of scrolling you talk... THX!
I didn't realise just how terrible it is until you brought it up. Adobe, please fix this!
