Mac Mouse Fix overview

Mac Mouse Fix is a simple way to make your mouse better.

Features:
  • Switch Between Spaces, activate Mission Control, Launchpad, and Quick Look, or use the side buttons to navigate through pages in your browser. All of that and more. Right from your mouse.
  • New Smooth Scrolling algorithm that strikes a perfect balance between fluidity and control. Allows you to change mouse scrolling direction independently of trackpad scrolling direction.
  • 100% free, light on system resources, and fully open source. Plugs into System Preferences. There is no status bar item. Mouse Fix aims to be as clutter free as possible.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

What’s new in version 3.0.2

Scrolling
  • You can now stop scroll animations by scrolling one step in the opposite direction. This allows you to 'throw' and 'catch' the page when using 'Smoothness: High', similar to a Trackpad.
  • Mac Mouse Fix now sends scroll events earlier in the display refresh cycle, giving apps more time to process the scroll events and display scrolling smoothly. This improves framerates, especially on complex websites like YouTube.com.
  • Improved the responsiveness of the 'Smoothness: High' setting, making scrolling easier to control.
  • Improved on a mechanism introduced in 3.0.1 where the animation speed becomes faster as you move the scroll wheel faster when using 'Smoothness: Regular'. In 3.0.2 the speedup of the animation should appear more consistent and predictable, making it easier on the eyes while providing great control.
  • Fixed a problem where the scrolling speed was too slow, especially when using the 'Precision' option. This problem was introduced in 3.0.1. Thanks to @V-Coba for drawing attention to it in 795.
  • Improved behaviour inside the Arc browser when using 'Click and Scroll' to 'Zoom In or Out'.
Localization
  • Updated Vietnamese translations. Credits to @nghlt!
  • Improved some German translations.
  • Text inside Mac Mouse Fix that doesn't have a translation for the current language will now show a placeholder value instead of just being blank. This should make it less confusing to navigate the app when there are missing translations.
Other
  • Mac Mouse Fix will now show a notification with a link to this guide to users who might be experiencing a bug in macOS 13 Ventura and later that can prevent Mac Mouse Fix from being enabled.
  • Changed the default settings for mice with 3 buttons. The default settings no longer feature a 'Click and Scroll' action for the Scrollwheel Button, since that is pretty hard to perform. Instead, the default settings now feature a 'Hold' and a 'Double Click' action.
  • Added a tooltip to the Mac Mouse Fix icon on the About tab. It tells you how to reveal Mac Mouse Fix's config file in the Finder.
  • Lots of under-the-hood cleanup and improvements.

Hi everyone! Developer here. Version 1.0.4, fixing a message that Mac Mouse Fix 'will damage your computer' is now available on mousefix.org. I recommend you download it there until the MacUpdate listing is updated from 1.0.3 to 1.0.4. To learn more about what was going on, see this GitHub Issue: https://github.com/noah-nuebling/mac-mouse-fix/issues/95.

1.0.1 is released, and it is a small but great app. Works natively on M1 Macs.

@ElbertLol1273 Mac Mouse Fix has since been updated to support Catalina, if you wanna check it out. (I'm the Noah, the developer, so my rating might be biased haha)
