Magic Trackpad gesture zoom in schematics and layout suddenly broken?

Today, I noticed that I cannot zoom anymore with the Apple Magic Trackpad's pinch-to-zoom gesture (same gesture on Magic Mouse also doesn't work, but who uses gestures on that thing? 🙂


I already checked the prefs, the mouse wheel mode is correct, toggling it does what I expect (zoom instead of pan with two fingers/by "scrolling" on the MM and MT)


I really like the ease of panning and zooming on the Magic Trackpad. How do I get this functionality back? Is this a bug or did some new setting change on me that I haven't found yet?


I'm still on macOS Mojave, however it also doesn't seem to work with Catalina.

Hi @isedhe ,


I hope you're doing well. Is this behavior limited to only Electronics or is it affecting the whole of Fusion? I have a feeling that in your case this will affect the entirety of Fusion 360 and if that's the case I have to get someone else involved.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Nevermind. I checked this morning, and by magic, everything is now back to normal. Scrolling and panning works as expected.


I tried to restart Fusion 360 and the whole machine yesterday, but nothing worked. Today, with no further restart of anything, everything is back to normal.
