Inertial Scrolling

Hi Vladimir,

Just got PPA and Trackpad++ and made my donations.
Very nice work! The only thing I miss in Trackpad++ is inertial scrolling. I've seen it's been on your roadmap since 2013, but not available yet... Any plan for a future release?
Best regards,
Cesar

@cesarvog: First, a brief summary, could be useful for the new users. With Trackpad++ the following scroll-related option are available:
- Accelerated scroll, 3 accel. curve presets (less sensitive than Boot Camp-native driver scroll, but accelerated);
- Or Boot Camp-like, linear scroll;
- Inverted ('natural') scroll
- Or standard direction scroll
- Option to not 'Respect focus', i.e.send the scroll to a window or control below pointer, regardless is it focused or not.
Currently all of those Trackpad++ options work identically in Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.

About the absence of the inertia effect: a while ago I had a demo where scroll inertia was present. It was neither precise, nor beautiful, though... mostly because in classic Windows desktop applications you cannot scroll with pixel-fine granularity. One line of text is the minimal distance. There were some other issues in such scroll implementation, so after all I never published it. Now I'm investigating how to make the inertia available in Windows 10, using the Windows 10 new APIs.

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks for the reply and explanation Vladimir.

I'll keep an eye on your work when Windows 10 arrives.

Best wishes.
