I wish we could figure out how to use trackpads to scroll on desktop. Telling users to "click scroll" causes some confusion in testing. If Framer, or someone else, could figure that out, Framer would fulfill 100% of my prototyping needs.

Our product still has a lot of desktop users and Framer is the best tool for prototyping on desktop.

Scroll.mouseWheelEnabled = true!!

I've had to put in a scrollbar for people to click and drag on as well as coding in scroll motions on arrow up and arrow down keys as well, but that's just for people with no pad or scrollwheel

Nicolai Doreng-Stearns

I can send you a snippet with all of that tomorrow when I'm on my work machine

If I'm using Flows and aren't calling a scrollComponet where do I put the scroll.mouseWheelEnabled? Or do I have to have a scrollComponent?

Andrew Cunliffe

*am not

Nicolai Doreng-Stearns

You'd need a scroll component for that to work. Just wrap whatever you want to be scrollable. If you want to kill the click and drag scrolling you can say scroll.content.draggable = false as well.

In all of these "scroll" is the name of your scroll component. Not sure how it works with Flows as I haven't used it yet.

I've been using framer for exclusively desktop and have had to find some workarounds, but everything works perfectly for me. Feel free to DM me if you want to compare notes on desktop best practices

That would be great, I'll try wrapping with a scroll component too.

Andrew Cunliffe

hey Nicolai Doreng-Stearns does the trackpad work in Studio or does it only work with an exported prototype in browser?

Trevor Coleman

I do it all the time -- just enable the scrollwheel.
