Pinch-to-zoom unreliable

same issure here with M1pro on Monterey

Same issues here :frowning:

Same issue here

I also have a problem with the trackpad, but the fact is that sometimes the ability to zoom the canvas disappears. The problem disappears over time, but repeats itself several times during the day.

I am using a desktop app on a macbook air m1

Same issue here - it seems to be a Monterey issue but this is seriously impacting when working in Figma.

I just had the same issue, it was working fine with Monterey a couple of days and now it’s not. Sometimes it works and sometimes not… It really impacts my work as I don’t use a mouse at all only external Trackpad :frowning:

Replying just to keep this alive because it’s awful and sucks and raaaaawwwrrr

Same issue here…keeping this alive…please fix this…heck just acknowledge it Figma and give an eta.

Getting the same issue. Only solution I’ve found is to close figma and start again. @Figma_Support please fix. Thank you

Did anyone find a better fix for this? Mine is so disruptive.

I am the original author of that question on StackExchange and for some reason, at some point that script stopped working, so if anyone is in the same situation, this modified version did it for me. The first time you run it it asks you to grant multiple accessibility permissions, but after that, it seems to work fine.

on run {input, parameters}
    tell application "System Preferences"
        if it is running then
            quit
            delay 0.2
        end if
    end tell
    tell application "System Preferences"
        activate
        set current pane to pane id "com.apple.preference.trackpad"
        delay 1
        tell application "System Events"
            tell front window of application process "System Preferences"
                repeat until (exists checkbox 2 of tab group 1)
                    delay 0.01
                end repeat
                click checkbox 2 of tab group 1
                click checkbox 2 of tab group 1
            end tell
        end tell
    end tell
    -- quit application "System Preferences"
    return input
end run

Save it in Automator as a Quick Action that runs the AppleScript
Go to System Preferences and add the Quick Action to a Keyboard Shortcut
I have it setup to my F14 key. This should make it less cumbersome and disruptive.

on run {input, parameters}
    tell application "System Preferences"
        if it is running then
            quit
            delay 0.2
        end if

    -- quit application "System Preferences"
    return input
end run

Still happens to me as well. It randomly just stopps working on my mouse pad.

Me too! This just happened (again!)

  • Macbook Pro 2018
  • Ventura 13.1
  • Figma Desktop App version 116.5.18

Yup, still happening. Today it literally stopped working about 1 second after loading Figma desktop – was in the middle of a pinch to zoom haha.
