Summary0012078: Text size when manipulated with trackpad responds opposite of intended result with each scroll
DescriptionBuild date: 12 February 2014
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.12.16-Mac/-64bit

When trying to manipulate the font size using the smooth scroll on OSX trackpad, specifically when the gestures are 2 fingered in a downward motion, in short bursts (slighty scolling downward) in order to manipulate in a more precise motion the selection - the result is that the font size field # starts to diminish backwards.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open a new document
2. Designate a text box
3. Write a string of text and highlight it
4. Open Properties -> Text and click and highlight all numbers in Font Size field
5 try upward 2-fingered stroke (increase font size) and then several mini downward 2-fingered strokes (decrease font size)
Pay attention how with the short burst downward adjustments that the counter takes on a life of it's own and decreases the font substantially that makes the mouse trackpad not very useful.

Added gifs showing the issue on OSX 10.10.5 1.5.1svn r20554

smooth-scroll-hiccup.gif is showing how I'm using 2 finger trackpad scroll + ⌘ to zoom in on a page. everytime I'm scroll upward the maginification increases and then immediately steps back several orders of magnitude.

smooth-scroll-weirdness.gif shows the phenomena happening when i 2 finger scroll in a spin box.
