No touchpad gestures on Windows 10 devices (with precision touchpad)

Gestures on the touchpad are currently not supported in nearly all Adobe CC Apps, Photoshop being one of them.

On Windows 10, there is no way to scroll diagonally on a touchpad, nor can you use a "pinch to zoom (in/out)" gesture. Scrolling is limited to horizontal and vertical dimensions, but only one dimension at a time.

I'm using a Surface Book 2. With its touchscreen, I am able to use these gestures. On the touchpad however, this isn't possible.

My workflow is heavily slowed down by this. I've been using a Macbook before and all gestures were supported - why isn't that the case on Windows?

Microsoft provides precision touchpad drivers for many devices. These drivers create a great touchpad experience on any device using them. It's the way forward for Windows10 laptops. Many programms use this, so there is no excuse why Adobe couldn't.

I would love being able to use these gestures. They would speed up everyone's workflow significantly and create an ease of use I come to expect from all of the Adobe CC Apps.

In Adobe XD, these gestures are available, although they are aren't smooth and a bit unresponsive. I'd suggest to fix those ones too.

Illustrator and InDesign aren't supported as well.

I just made the jump from Mac to Windows. Was shocked to find out about this and am very disappointed that it seems like Adobe doesn't care at all. Commented here to stay in the loop.

Unfortunately, I don't think that Adobe will ever include precision touhpad gestures as they are focused on deploying those gestures on touchscreen interfaces equiped Windows machines. 😞

I had to purchase a PC for landscape architecture grad school--I previously only used Mac devices with Adobe products. This is absolutely maddening. Adobe, PLEASE FIX THIS. This is a basic functionality issue that really impedes the effectiveness of your software. Ugh.

OK ACTUALLY I just had a breakthrough. If you hold the alt key it will let you essentially toggle back and forth between the two types of zoom features. Seen here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/illustrator-pinch-zoom-does-not-work-on-touch...

photoshop 2024 just dropped and still no touch pad gestures on PC, yet there has been full support for the same pan, rotate, zoom gestures on PC touch screens for quite a while. The fact that they already already have the functionality coded for PC based touch screen and still haven't implemented on touchpads means that this issue boils down to adobe's total lack of giving a single F...
