I'm running PS 22 on Mac OS 15.7 and a Magic Mouse. The normal behavior of the mouse is to scroll with touch, like a trackpad on a laptop. I frequently accidently brush the top of the mouse with my hand, which results in the image being moved off the screen and is quite annoying.

 

Is there a way to turn this behavior off ONLY in PS? Scrolling is useful in other apps, so I dont' want to disable completely.  I can still scroll/pan with the hand tool if I need to.

 

Thanks!

I used MagicPrefs to restrict the touchable area for scrolling (a setting Apple should include on their mouse settings). I used it beyond its stated OS support but I have used it lately so I'm not sure if it will work on the new OS. As the website states, use at your own risk. http://magicprefs.com/

 

You can also check out BetterTouchTool to see if that works for you. I have not used this tool, but they have a 45-day trial and it work with Big Sur. https://www.folivora.ai/
