Scrolling using a Mac touchpad is broken

I'm using TeamViewer on Mac (with different macOS versions) to control a Windows 10 computer, and whenever I'm scrolling vertically using the Mac trackpad, happens to trigger horizontal scrolling at the same time, which forces me to use a mouse with a scroll wheel for certain tasks like programming.

This is very very frustrating because I find the keyboard mapping excellent and I really feel like the remote machine is actually the one I'm directly working on.

    I have this problem as well. This issue makes it unbearable to use Teamviewer. Is there any other platforms that can be used for mac?

  • Parallels work and cost less, TeamViewer does not seem to care to fix this. Makes it useless for me too.

    This is super frustrating. I keep an old mouse attached just because of Teamviewer. I'd appreciate a timeline on a fix or even just the knowledge that this is anywhere on the company's radar.

    Same problem here. Scrolling is not working properly from my MacBook.

    Same here, scrolling from mac touchpad is broken. I don't want to use a mouse, so I use a TeamViewer alternative!
