P50: Trackpoint Scrolling Woes

2017-12-10, 7:51 AM

I'm hoping someone can help me solve one of the more persistent problems plaguing my P50 (20EN), namely the spastic, herky-jerky scrolling when using the TrackPoint with middle button. This is far and away the most frustrating experience I've ever had wiht a trackpoint (and I've used a lot of trackpoints).

 

There are only two TrackPoint settings on this machine, and neither is relevant to this issue:

• The 'ThinkPad' tab in the Windows 10 'Mouse Properties' panel has a checkbox to enable and disable TrackPoint globally and radio buttons to select the middle button function.

• The Synaptics Control Panel has a slider for controlling the TrackPoint scrolling speed.

 

TrackPoint has always stood out on my list of reasons for buying ThinkPads in the first place, so this is issue particularly poignant for me, and, frankly, I'm close to my wit's end on this one.

 

Please, someone tell me there exists a solution.

So... Everyone else loves scrolling on their P50?

I'm still hoping there's a way to fix these issues. I plan on keeping my P50 for quite a while longer

Every time I have to pull my P50 from its dock and use it as a laptop I'm reminded of just how disappointing and awful is its TrackPoint implementation. Today is one of those days.
