Smoother Panning and Zooming

I'm using a M1 MacBook Air 2020, and I recently downloaded the latest version of Adobe apps (Illustrator 28.0 and Photoshop 25.2). I'm acustomed to the way Figma handles zooming, scrolling an panning, where if you make a gesture and you lift your fingers out of the trackpad, the movement continues for a bit before stopping smoothly, and the zoom is sensitive enough for me to not separate my fingers too much.

 

In Photoshop the continuation of the panning movement is present, but is really choppy. In illustrator is unexistent, and the zooming sensitivity with the trackpad is really low and it sometimes it doesn't recognize the gesture. Is there a way to change this behavior?

 

Below you can see both videos where I use the same gestures in Figma and in Illustrator. I can live with the choppy photoshop paning, but the illustrator issue is really annoying.

 

Thanks in advance!

The Macbook trackpad is a PITA. Search it on Google and you will be bombarded with results about it not working correctly. The Zoom gesture sometimes just fails out of the blue. I have had that happen in all kinds of applications. Here is someone who has made a fix for that (side note: I am not using this, I'm just getting upset) https://github.com/danqing/Pinch

 

As for the behaviour you are describing: Illustrator is not working like that. You take your fingers off the trackpad and the scrolling/zooming stops.

 

If you would like to have that: please post a feature request: https://illustrator.uservoice.com Note: headcount is important. If you want to have a slight chance that your request gets implemented, then you need supporters. Lots of them.
