I love this product. I can't live without this product. I use a trackpoint keyboard with my Mac and I can't scroll without this product AFAIK. What irritates me about this product is its always behind on the updates and the developer won't let the product start if the running OSX version doesn't match the currently release. Marc has mentioned before that this is to ensure the integrity of the product. I understand on DOT revs that come out on a whim, this is fine, but with major OS releases, we've had the beta's and now the GM for a while now and to not have the final code ready on release day is why I dock one star. I don't know what other things Marc has going in his life, but I hope somehow the product can more closely match the release dates in the future.

Marc has always been punctual with updates when a new system is released but this time, he has even anticipated it. Thanks! This clearly shows his immense care and interest for all users who like me can’t live without this invaluable utility. If Smart Scroll doesn't open at login, or doesn't start, drag the helper application to the list of Login Items, in Users & Groups in System Preferences. Also drag it to the Privacy /Accessibility list, if needed. You can access the helper application by clicking on the ˇ sign on the upper right corner of the main Smart Scroll window.

This is odd. Yesterday when I downloaded the corrected version 4.4.3 it functioned properly. Now today it's no longer functioning with Saffari 12.1. I had to return to the previous version. Any explanation from Marc?!

If you download Smart Scroll 4.4.3 again, I expect it will work now. The latest Safari update broke the fix I had just made, but I found another better one. It will be listed in the next version of Smart Scroll, but this way you can get it without waiting. Thanks for letting me know about this problem!

To the developer: Hello Marc. Please note that the latest version doesn't run on Saffari 12.1 (14607.1.40.1.4). I had to restore the old version and now it functions flawlessly. Thanks for your kind attention. All the best. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI (Verona - Italy)

Hello again Marc, I regret to say that the new version I just commented about works fine with Safari, but is broken on all other applications on my iMac! None of them function any more! I had to restore SmartScroll to the previous version to return to normality. I don’t know if it’s my mouse (Logitech - Performance MX) or there’s another issue. If any other SmartScroll user experiences these problems, then please let us know. Thanks.

Hello Marc. It’s in fact very bizzarre but unfortunately that’s what’s happening on my iMac. I was also expecting to hear someone else reporting this but until now no one has done it. I therefore stick to the previous version which functions flawlessly. Thanks for your kind investigation into this matter. Cheers.

Hello again Marc. Thanks for your efforts in resolving this issue. I do confirm that now everything functions properly. All applications now scroll as expected and the same is also true for Safari. I’m glad that you realized I was not imagining! Whatever the cause it’s now over. Thank you again for your priceless support of this gorgeous utility. Cheers and all the best.

I am a fan of Smart Scroll. However, with this version 4.4.3, it does not work with Safari 10.1.2. I tried it on two different machines, both with Mac OS 10.5.5 (yose). I restarted the Macs and restarted Safari but nothing helped. I went back to V 4.4.2 and that works smoothly and perfectly!

This is about Smart Scroll. Here's a question they asked me: I’m curious why you gave Smart Scroll only 3 stars, I suppose you've ran into problems. Would you please say what they are, so I get a chance to fix them? Here's my answer: I've had Smart Scroll since 2012. During that time, the thing that impressed/depressed me most of all about Smart Scroll was the lousy service. It has been virtually non-existent during most of that time. TODAY, I noticed that they were pushing the 4.3.9 version. Great, except-UNTIL TODAY--they have been trying to push the 4.1 version and I kept telling them that I have had that version for many years, so why are they calling it NEW? Well, I never got a satisfactory answer; in fact the last answer they gave me took about a week and was of no help at all. Good old Smart Scroll. (Some things never change) People have been known to grow old and die while waiting for an answer from them. Well, they'll give me no more gray hairs, because I won't be expecting anything from them ever again.

I asked you that question almost 7 months ago. It is visible just a few comments below. And you are answering today, which finally gives me an idea of what the problem is that you're dissatisfied about: if you've been seeing notifications saying version 4.1 is available, that's likely because you have been running a previous version that had an update notification bug. Which has been fixed for many, many months. If that's not it, you're welcome to contact me using the email given on the Support page on marcmoini.com, and I'll do my best to assist you.

Smart Scroll is awesome. I primarily use it so I can engage scrolling with a button on my Wacom stylus, but there are lots of other handy features as well. The developer is a friendly guy and quick to fix any issues that pop up with system updates. Been using this for years and always happy to pay the very infrequent paid upgrades. Smart Scroll is in my macOS EDC list.

I should add that I bought it on 5/21/12. I am sure that I have been updating it from time to time, but I can't find any evidence for that. Anyway, my question remains: do I have to pay $14 to update from version 4.1 to the current version?

You don't have to pay to update.

The only situation so far for a paid upgrade is if you paid before OSX Lion, in 2011, and you want to use Smart Scroll 4 on one of the OSX versions since that one. And then you would need to pay $7.

I'm curious why you gave Smart Scroll only 3 stars, I suppose you've ran into problems. Would you please say what they are, so I get a chance to fix them?
