Description Arnab 2021-01-07 13:56:46 UTC
Zooming with touchpad is very hard. Even though it is very smooth, but It starts to zoom very quickly when we zoom with touchpad, forcing me to use the '+' and "-" buttons to zoom which is tedious.

It was happening even with skia rendering engine.

I don't know if it is a problem with my touchpad but MS word and other software zooms fine with the touchpad.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Libreoffice writer
2.Try to zoom the document with touchpad

Actual Results:
zooms very fast with the slightest "pinch" using touchpad

Expected Results:
The zooming should have been slower.
I am not a programmer or anything closer to that so I apologize for my bad way of giving information

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Prefer a conformation first. Haven't noticed it on macOS touchpad...

Might depend on touchpad, because for me zooming is very slow and sometimes zoom increases / decreases 5% and sometimes 10%.

Could you retest with actual version of LO? At least related to bug 106008.
