Hi all.

 

Surely someone has an answer??

 

I am always scrolling vertically through multi-page documents using my Mac trackpad. But I only have to touch my trackpad wrongly for the pages to slide off to the edge left or right.

 

Working in Word or equivalent, pages just scroll neatly vertically

 

Same when working on a page, I can have the page happily centred on the screen and working and then oops it shoots across the screen and I have to recentre.

 

a. Can I lock a page in place centred on the screen so it does not move?

b. Can I lock all the pages centred so that they will only scroll vertically

 

Thanks & Cheers Robert

I suggest you reset your InDesign preferences:

1) Close InDesign
2) Double click on Adobe InDesign's icon to launch it
3) QUICKLY hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift. (for Windows) or CTL+OPT+CMD+Shift (for Mac OS X)
4) When a dialog appears, ask you “Delete InDesign Preference Files?” Click Yes.

(If you don't see the question do it again.)

Thanks but unfortunately this makes no difference at all. 

See video please, all I want is smooth vertical only scrolling

Is there a pref I have missed to lock scrolling to vertical only?

It should not be this hard
