Really??? No one is having this issue? I have to basically alternate between using mouses. This bug is driving me nuts.
Maybe its impossible or you just dont have your mouse settings ...set up in a way that suits graphics and video edit requirements
and these guys are telling you something..
I know most professionals might prefer not using Apple's Magic Mouse for professional applications,
FWIW - I have wireless Gaming Mouse (multifunctional and configureable) that works perfectly on my PC. I dont run it in super sensitive modes.
EXACT SAME THING HERE Can't find answer !!
drag and drop clip is ssssooooooooooooo frustrating !!
I have to use a usb mouse for premiere and magic mouse for e-mail and other stuff...
I discovered that what makes it not to work is simply the horizontal scroll of the "middle button". if you click, start draging a clip and your finger move of half of 1mm, then it just end the move there... same for rectangle selection !
hate that !
I'm getting pain in the arm because I switch mouse all the time and they are obviously not the same speed and this change my work flow and lot of stuff ! This is a tiny problem causing huge problem !!
here is my explanation: Hello Simple problem - don,t know how to solve it. With Premiere CC when I try to do a selection (click... drag... release the click) very often it stop way before the end of the move I'm swinging the Magic Mouse. I taught that the mouse clicking was de
Can,t find any topic with concrete solution !
I am having the same exact problem. Huge pain!! And a huge loss of time. I feel like adobe owes us some money for lost time. A mouse created by apple should work in this program.
A mouse created by apple should work in this program.
Who wrote the drivers and designed the hardware for this magic mouse ... and how can have Adobe any control over that ?
Whats "magic" about it anyway?
Respectfully I would ask that if you dont have a suggestion or a solution to the problem please refrain from commenting on a thread. Its wasted time and energy for already frustrated individuals trying to find answers.
It was you suggesting Adobe owed you for a third party responsibility.
This is an open forum (read discussion)...so you buy into the conversation as part of the deal.
Here is a suggestion. Ask Apple why it doesnt work as you expect.
In the same vein..I never had much success with Wacom Pen / Tablets and Premiere.
I discarded them as a tool. Never felt it was Adobe fault though. (Unless you are setting up a class action and I am in)
Was there any solution to this issue? I have to use a track pad as the Apple mouse does not click and drag - very frustrating!
same issue on my MBP with Magic Mouse. Problem exist with PP CC 2014 and is more worse on PP CC 2015 ... using a cable mouse is required :-(
I am on 2 fairly new iMacs, one with 2014 (8.2.0) and the other with the new 2015. I also use a Wacom Intros Pro when in Photoshop and PP, depending on my workflow such as reviewing footage adding clip markers, etc.
On both Macs and both versions of PP, my mouse works very smoothly without issues.
Off topic a little but my Wacom tablet works perfectly fine as well. Even when I had a Win 7 Pro machine my Wacom worked perfectly.
Have you tried going into your Apple preferences and adjust the Mouse tracking sensitivity? When I had it at the default setting it was super sluggish and maddening. I set the tracking all the way to "Fast" and it works very smooth for me. Scrolling up and down timeline, scrolling to expand/collapse track height, etc., is all very smooth.
yes i have change the sensibility for the mouse and no changes.
With the Magic Mouse it took 3-5 tries to i.e. grab/move an effetc to a clip.
With a cheap Logitech cable mouse every grab/move works ...
1 year trying to understand the problem.
Magic Mouse sucks, so replace it for any other.
Having the same issue with PPro 2015. Click and drag is all but unusable with a magic mouse. Half the time I click on a clip in the timeline (or in a bin or anywhere else) it doesn't even register the click. I like the simplicity of the magic mouse and it works great in every other program. Wish it worked the same in PPro..
When I responded in June I misunderstood the OP's question.
I experience constant issues with click/drag with the magic mouse in ALL apps on my Macs.
Whether I'm in PP, Excel, Word, etc. the Magic mouse is a joke. It's ok for simple "clicking" however click/drag is very frusrating.
On the Mac I run PP/AE/PS, etc. I use a Wacom tablet extremely precise and no issues. (I actually find it much more comfortable on my hand over a long duration as I have carpeltunnel that occasionally flares up). In any case, trying to sit there and click/drag in PP can be maddening.
When I'm on my Mac I use for email, office, web browsing, etc, trying to copy/paste can be just as frustrating. When I'm in Excel, if I just barely touch the mouse the wrong way my excel sheet goes flying 100 columns to the right.
The only thing I can say I really like the magic mouse for is vertical scrolling on web pages or vertical scrolling in iTunes as I have a very large music library.
So overall I do not feel this is an Adobe issue at all, rather an Apple issue. The sensors used in the Magic Mouse need to be tweaked or something by Apple.
Half the time I click on a clip in the timeline (or in a bin or anywhere else) it doesn't even register the click.
I experience this as well, however I experience this in almost every other app, Adobe AND Apple.
Sorry, I haven't updated this thread, since I last posted.
I'm not blaming Adobe. I'm just frustrated that neither Apple or Adobe seemed to have tested mouse functionality with a stock Magic Mouse. If either team did, they would have noticed that the mouse works like **** in Premiere. If Adobe noticed it, they should have addressed to Apple's team to provide a software fix, if possible.
For now, this problem has yet to be resolved in my books. I don't know if the new chargeable Lighting Magic Mouses are any better.
I use a crappy wired mouse for Premiere and the Magic Mouse for everything else. I would like to just have a solid wired mouse, with all the Apple supported features of the Magic Mouse. It's obviously too much to ask.
Yes, I tried adjusting all settings to no avail. It's probably the hardware of the Apple mouse.
I've tried other mouses, but lose out on touch scrolling and multifinder gestures, so it's not really a solution going to other mouses that don't offer those features.
I recently purchased the iMac and my magic mouse is very erratic also. When I zoom into an InDesign document, the frame often scrolls around to different parts of the page, on it's own. Very strange and hard to get control over. I've gone into the preferences hoping to find some adjustment, but there is nothing. I'm frustrated and loosing time. Help!
I have been very annoyed with this issue as well, and it seems there is no solution with the hardware or software. However, a technique that has been working for me nearly 100% is clicking and dragging with movement. So, what I do is, have my mouse moving over top of the clip and then click and hold while continuing to drag. I guess this might help with the confusion the mouse experiences, or it might just keep my finger stuck on the mouse and not make the mouse think I'm scrolling to the side. Don't know if it will help for everyone, but give it a try, it seems to be working for me... although its still a pain to change the way you edit just for a weird problem like this.
I have the same click/grab/move issues with the Magic Mouse as many of you. It's a relief to know I'm not going crazy. I've tried a million different approaches to fix it, but it is such an erratic problem, there is no real work around. CS 6 at home works great. CC 2015 at work is very frustrating. That's why I think it's an Adobe problem, not an Apple problem.
This is also driving me crazy. I'm looking at getting a new mouse. Anyone have one they like that can scroll horizontally?
Are any of you left-handed? I am.
I have been having this issue since I started using Adobe Premiere Pro 2015 on a brand new 27" iMac two months ago. Sometimes my Magic Mouse will just not work. My only solution was to scrub the mouse quickly left and right, let go, and count to five.
Then one day when the mouse froze I moved the mouse with my right hand and it worked! And so far, every time since.
