Summary0015642: 'Right-click' on trackpad makes cursor jump upwards
DescriptionWhen bringing up the context-sensitive menu with a right-click on an Apple Magic trackpad using a two-finger tap, the cursor jumps vertically. This means that the incorrect menu is sometimes obtained if clicking near the top of an object or the object is small.
Steps To ReproduceThis does not happen if the trackpad is set to produce a right click with a single finer tap in the bottom corner. It is a rather strange bug!
TagsNo tags attached.

not sure if you're seeing what i see...

in my case, if i'm not more than careful, the document scrolls when doing the two-finger tap for the context menu.

this always happens if i put the finger vertically. if they are perfectly horizontal, i can get a context menu without any movement.

in other programs (like firefox right now) i never get any movement when doing the two finger tap.

no idea if scribus can fix this or if it's a qt thing...

p.s.: of course, i'm on a very different computer: linux on dell... so it does not seem to be an hardware issue...

can confirm the strange scrolling on a macbook (sometimes even with perfectly horizontal aligned fingertips) – no jumping cursor and no vertical movement here.

I think this is either gone with later versions of Qt or its fixed with my touchpad tap gesture changes
