According to this thread and my own experience, two-finger gestures are not supported for scrolling which is a mild annoyance at times. To be fair, many Windows dialogs don't support it either (and many of them also don't have real DPI-scaling), but for ST this would be changable I believe.

Not really minor and not really a new feature.
A text editor that doesn't scroll is not a text editor...

Well, you can still scroll reasonably well with the minimap, but it's still annoying and I tried not to be biased in my labeling.

Well it does not work either on XPS 13 (2015 model).
Perhaps all scrolling introduced by the high precision touchpad APIs does not work on Sublime Text 3.

However scrolling IS supported in the fullscreen mode......

I also have the new Dell XPS13 with the precision touchpad. I can't get any two finger scrolling working, not in fullscreen (F11) either. Another thing that isn't working is scrolling with the touch screen (in most other apps you can do that with one finger scrolling, like an iPad).

This is a bit ridiculous since it's still not fixed. I did purchase a license for an editor which can't even handle scroll inputs correctly?

Not wanting to know how many paying customers are unable to use the software they paid for is ridiculous. You can't just close your ears and say lalalala.

If they paid $70 then they at least deserve to know if there is or will be a fix in the works.

I explained this on the forums, but anyway, when you purchase Sublime (as you do most products) you're paying for the product as it is. Updates are provided at the discretion of the developers, in this case Jon updates Sublime for free (at least minor versions).

As it happens, this is the official place for issues, read this. All I've asked is that you refrain from the "me too" comments, at least when there are several people who've already said the same thing. The issue may or may not be fixed, I, nor others can say when. It's down to Jon. He'll most likely be aware of this issue, but he's focusing on other things right now.

Since we run this issue tracker, it's down to us on how we deem it be used. We're extremely grateful for all of the bugs that are reported as it's super useful for others to know that other people are experiencing the issue and it's useful for Jon to track down bugs he may not experience himself.

IMO, the "me too" comments are a way to let the developer(s) know that this bug shouldn't be ignored...

Yeah, but when there are 13 of the same "me too for this device" it's of no overall benefit.

If you take a look at the UserEcho setup, you'll see there are 2k upvotes on something, but it's not done. Just because a lot of people request something, it doesn't naturally equate to being important - and no, I'm not saying this issue isn't important, that's why it's labelled as high and not locked the comments.

works great so far ! :) 👍

REVISED: generally works but is at times a bit jittery. sometimes seems confused about direction of scroll - snaps up and down a bit, so i have to lift finger and re-tap. also transfers jittery scrolling to finger scrolling on built in surface trackpad as well as external logitech trackpad.

I'm running build 3129 on Windows 10 Creator's Update on a Surface Pro 4.

  • Main window two-finger scroll and touch scroll is buttery smooth and amazing.
  • Sidebar touch scroll is amazing.
  • Sidebar two-finger scroll is jittery and broken.

Huge touch improvements and extremely welcome. I'm looking forward to seeing the sidebar nailed.

Can you try build 3136 and see if there are improvements on Windows related to the jittery scrolling?

Thanks Will much better! It works great on my Surface, but is still a tiny bit jittery on my Dell touch monitor.

Thanks for this - works really well on my Surface 3 Pro, though for short files where the vertical scroll doesn't reach the full height of the screen it's a bit weird to drag it in such a small area. Maybe if it were set at full height at all times?

Touch scrolling itself is terrific on 3139, thank you. However some further improvements are necessary for efficient use with touchscreen devices:

  • Text selection appears impossible via touch or Surface Pen. Perhaps not a deal-breaker for some? But other text-editing apps reserve two-finger drag for scrolling and single-finger dragging for text selection.

  • Can the Minimap be made touch responsive? That would allow rapid access to anywhere within in the file, from beginning to end.

  • Not sure if it applies to other devices but on the Surface 3, Sublime doesn't work properly with the Surface Pen. It can't distinguish hover from actual dragging, making the interface nearly impossible to use.

Thanks again.

It's completely unnecessary to be able to select text via touch from my point of view. But it's probably because I use actual laptop (with touchscreen).

I absolutely agree.

Just reiterating that Sublime Text doesn't properly understand Surface Pen input (testing build 3140 on Surface Pro 4). It treats everything (including hover) as a touch-drag, so you can't even move the cursor to another position.

Actual touch input is nice and very responsive, however.

Touchscreen scrolling doesn't work on build 3143 on Manjaro, both in GNOME and i3. Device: Razer Blade Stealth (Late 2017).
It works in other apps.
Minimap is touch-responsive, by the way.
Ask me if I can help.

This issue seems to be both about touchscreen and touchpad issues. Aren't they separate?

The issue is not a problem with Sublime Text itself, but with Elantech drivers for Windows 10, as other applications have the same problem.

The reddit solution works for me.

The original issue here (Windows 2 finger scroll) was fixed in build 3136, so I am closing as fixed. I've got a Surface Book 2 now and have confirmed it all. If you are having other touch or scroll issues on different platforms or on a specific UI element, please open a new issue after testing on one of the latest builds (3200 for stable and 3202 for dev).
