Description Freddie O’Connell 2019-08-13 18:43:34 UTC
If I open Numbers (Apple's spreadsheet application), it uses the current macOS metaphor for two-touch scrolling such that I slide my two fingers to the left to move my field of view to the right.

In Calc in LibreOffice, by contrast, the scrolling is reversed, which makes usability pretty unfortunate.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a spreadsheet with enough content that horizontal scrolling is required.
2. Slide two fingers to the left.
3. Get frustrated.

Actual Results:
I have to slide two fingers to the right to shift my field of view to the right.

Expected Results:
I would expect the horizontal scrolling to reflect expected macOS best practices.

Reproducible: Always
