Scrolling with Dell touchpad in MS Word wonky (i.e. totally f-ed up) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dell "Ultrabook" e7240, having a touchpad with two-finger scroll function. This works very well in most apps, but in MS Word 2013 it's totally wonky and pretty much uncontrollable. It starts scrolling in the wrong direction, it doesn't stop scrolling when you want, etc. etc. Why is this? Why does MS always have to apply non-standard operating system standard functions to its Office suite? Is there a way to turn this behavior off, so that it will scroll the same way in Word that it does in other applications? Please help!

    Edit - this only seems to happen, believe it or not, in the "Outline" view. Go figure. Would be interested to see if this occurs for other people too!
