Shift + Scroll Wheel Zoom Not Working Properly on MacBook Pro

Community Beginner ,

I'm a longtime Photoshop user on Windows PCs and routinely use the mouse scroll wheel zoom functionality. Additionally, I often hold down the shift key when zooming in this way to limit the zoom to the standard percentages (e.g. 16.67, 25, 33.33, 50, 66.67, 100, 200, etc.) that render a sharper image.

 

I recently purchased a MacBook Pro M1 Max and set up the Photoshop preferences to match those on my PC. The scroll wheel on my mouse zooms the document in and out as usual, but holding down the shift key on the MacBook while scrolling isn't limiting the zoom to the standard percentages, only zooming in larger steps.

 

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix?

I'm using a Logitech MX Anywhere 3 mouse. After some experimenting, I found that the Logi Options+ software for the mouse seems to be causing this problem. When I disable the software, the zoom behavior in PS operates normally when using the scroll wheel. I've tried various configurations within the software to no avail. Perhaps this is an issue that Logitech needs to fix.

David, I assume you are using Ventura.  Could you confirm that and version number?  Google tells me 13..2 is the latest, but I am just a Windows user, so I know nothing. 😉  

 

There will be a known issues page you can check, but I am sure one of the Mac guys will be along with a fuller answer soon

Trevor, my system shipped with Monterey installed (I'm don't have my MacBook in front of me right now and don't recall the exact version number). I haven't upgraded to Ventura yet, so that isn't the issue.

Are you using an Apple mouse or a regular mouse with an actual scroll wheel?

 

Depending on brand and model of mouse there may be software for that specific mouse with a setting that needs to be changed.

 

It works here using a mouse with an actual scroll wheel on both a 2012 MacBook Pro running

macOS Monterey 12.6.3 with photoshop 2023(ps version 24.1.1) and a 2022 Mac Studio running

macOS Ventura 13.2 with photoshop 2023 (ps version 24.1.1)

Look specifically at the Scroll Wheel options.

Apparently the scroll wheel can have clicks or free-spinning depending on how fast one scrolls, so maybe there is a setting for that.

I've tried those various settings as well. No luck. 😞

 

I guess I'll just have to make sure the Logi software is disabled whenever I am using PS until there is a fix.
