Having trouble moving objects in Cura on Mac OS X with laptop touchpad

Recommended Posts

Almost any time I try to move an object on the build platform in Cura, the object jumps way up and right of the cursor. If I drag my finger across the trackpad all the way from the top right to the bottom left, I'm barely able to get the object back to the point where it started.

Is there anything triggering this behavior or is there a workaround?

@NonSequor: I would be interested to know if this still happens in the 15.10 open beta, which you can download from here:


This contains a fix for the objects jumping away if you touch them more than once (among many, many other fixes and new features, and in all likelihood some new bugs that will get fixed shortly).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
