There is a strange jumping effect on the palettes menu when you want to scroll with the mouse wheel.

  1. Open a few palettes. Let the pallets be a little off the screen (overflow).
  2. Scroll up and down with the Mouse wheel.

I believe this particular effect in intentional, but I'm not a huge fan. It's better than the first beta, where it was almost impossible to control the scrolling even before you hit the top/bottom. Now it's more of a curiosity than a hindrance. At least, so it seems after just a little time with it, we'll see how I feel in a few days / weeks.

I installed 3.3 and I didn't see anything corrected.
It still has this effect and prevents easy scrolling between elements. (As if a continuous braking mechanism is running)
see comparison.

Perhaps this effect may seem uninterrupted but minimal.
However, in the present case, it scrolls as you don't want.
Imagine how a web page scrolls when using the mouse wheel.
The desktop app is not a mobile phone so let's stop scrolling with a finger stroke.

That is strange, for me something similar happens only sometimes, and most of times scrolling goes without jumping over boundaries. In 3.3.2 this was always reproducible. However it indeed appears to be somehow not fully disabled.

The issue is still there as of 3.5, or at least is not solved fully. When I scroll through "lines" palette, or other long palette it scrolls like on a glitchy smartphone. the amount of scroll is disproportional to the amount of finger movement. Scrolls down too much and too fast. Looks like it continues to scroll after the fingers aren't moving anymore. Very uncomfortable for using my trackpad

This is more of a suggestion than a bug.

It might be because you have a regular mouse, and it only occurs with some trackpads. However it is quite bad and even though you "technically" can use the pallette, the way "how" it works will drive people crazy. I would not take it so lightly. It is very frustrating, when you cannot properly navigate on a smaller screen and have to keep fiddling around to get to the needed element! Not good!

As said before It is most severe when you navigate long palettes like "lines". What it does is as soon as you scroll within that palette it tries to scroll you all the way to the end of the menu right away. And it does that even if your fingers stop. So I don't know what feature is that, that causes this "force navigation" to the end of the palette, but in this context it is a disaster. You just jump over the elements you wanted to use and have to scroll back and forth trying to catch what you need in the palette. On smartphones and other touch devices this continuous "tail" scrolling will only happen if you take your fingers up from the surface doing these common "swiping" gestures, but NEVER when your fingers stop and stay on the touch surface. It is also way too fast. And it only happens within the pallets area and nowhere else within Musescore, or anywhere else on my computer for that matter. So this is simply a wrong behavior that seems to affects devices using two finger scrolling. Effectively a bug. Not a suggestion.
