Hey there,
The pinch/zoom gesture in animate cc does not work for me.
This is both with the macbook internal trackpad as well as a wacom tablet. The zoom gesture works in all other programms (Browsers photoshop, indesign).
I been using animate cc 2019, but now updated to 2020 (v20.5.1) because I thought that might resolve it, but the issue still persists.  os version is 10.14.6
Is this a known issue? Anything that can be done to fix this?

Any tips on how to build a workaround with BetterTouchTool? I just got a new iPad and pencil, and all I want is to use Adobe Animate in SideCar, with the ability to pinch and zoom the canvas, like in every other drawing app.

In BTT there are guesture triggers for pinching out and in. So you want to make an application group for Animate (so other pinch zooms are not affected). Set up the pinch triggers and give them "CMD +" and "CMD -" keystroke action. Then also it is handy to set up with the repeate function (play around with rate and repeate till it feels right), so it keeps zooming when you pinch more.

 

As you can think this gives you not quite the same effect as normal pinching as you can only scale in the same steps as you would when using the keyboard, and I don't think there is any app setting to lower the zoom steps –but there might be also a different and probably more complicated way of making a 'set zoom action'.

But anyhow even this version I think is much better than nothing, as otherwise I always pinched for a minute before I remembered it does not work in AnimateCC, like this at least it does what you want even if not as accurat as I would like.

ps. just noticed: As far as I know sidecar is not yet supported in BTT (at least for guestures). But the main developer does consider adding this in the future if possible
