There’s a bug in the Mac version of the desktop app where if you are dragging a scrollbar (horizontal or vertical) and the cursor moves outside of the app window, the scrolling stops. Then, when the cursor hovers back over the app, the scrolling continues, even if the mouse button is not down. It’s a jarring experience. Here is how to recreate:
- Desktop app is open and in focus the entire time. It’s helpful to decrease the size of the window so it is not full width/height of the screen.
- Click and hold scrollbar to drag. While you’re dragging, move the cursor outside of the boundaries of the app window. Scrolling should stop.
- Release mouse button.
- Move cursor back into the boundaries of the app window. Scrolling will continue based on mouse y-coordinates. You have to click anywhere to stop the scrolling.
Compare to other apps (e.g.: Chrome) to see how this behavior is broken.
I’m not using Apple’s mouse so don’t have touch or horizontal scrolling built-in. So clicking and dragging is the only way to scroll, especially horizontally and because there’s no track behind the scroll bar.
Would love it if this was fixed. I def use Airtable less because it’s so difficult to view large tables because of this issue. Happy to provide any more details if that’s helpful.
