Scroll w mouse on iPad?

Got a bluetooth keyboard and mouse working on the iPad Mini 5.

But for some reason when in an app like Safari, I can’t get the scroll wheel to work to scroll up and down the page? Did I miss an obvious setting somewhere? Thanks in advance! – Chris

Ahhh, I see now, Click and Drag. :slight_smile:

Myke Hurley and CGP Grey were just talking about this on Cortex #96: Levels, Levels - Relay FM, and Make said something to the effect of:

“It’s best to think of the mouse as a replacement for your fingertip rather than a mouse.”

So if you run into a situation using a mouse with the iPad and something doesn’t work, ask yourself: “How would I do this with my finger?”

I’m still surprised and disappointed that the Magic Trackpad doesn’t work. I’m hoping that Apple improves this feature in iPadOS 14 to include text editing / selection / etc and work with more devices.

That’s strange, it works fine with my Logitech Master. The scroll wheel works as expected

Oh that is weird. Also using Logitech. And it’s also weird that the scroll wheel works like you’d expect in the Settings app, but not Safari?
