I have just installed MacVim on my new Macbook.
But I have a problem: on Linux I was able to scroll through my code—vertically moving my cursor—by using my trackpad. But on Macvim this doesn't work for me.
When scrolling in Macvim, the buffer/window scrolls but the cursor doesn't move.
I made a little video demonstrating the issue: here you see the buffer moving when I scroll using my trackpad, but not my cursor scrolling.
I tried to fix this error by using the command
:set mouse=a, but without success. I also took a look at MouseTerm (using SIBML), but this doesn't seem trustworthy and a little bit overkill to just enable good scrolling behavior.
I found a solution which came close:
nnoremap <ScrollWheelUp> k nnoremap <ScrollWheelDown> j
However, this scrolling is not even close to smooth and I was hoping for a more elegant way to solve this than remapping.
By the way, scrolling does work fine in the normal Vim using the Terminal as long as Mouse Reporting is enabled.
TL;DR: How to enable smooth scrolling behavior with trackpad in Macvim? Thanks!
