I upgraded to Eagle 7 a couple of days ago the the scroll behaviour seems to have changed. Using a two finger scroll on a mac trackpad I used to be able to pan around in Eagle 6 but using Eagle 7 this has now become zoom in and out.

Has anyone else experienced a change like this or does anyone know how to revert the behaviour?

Had the same problem. Fortunately, it's an easy fix!

Options > User Interface...

  1. Set mouse wheel zoom to 0.
  2. Turn Legacy mouse wheel mode off.

The solution for me on Eagle 7.6.0 on Macbook was typing SET Interface.UseCtrlForPanning 1 into the command field (near the top of the window). The command key along with trackpad click-and-drag now pans. I found this solution here.

My symptoms were the scrollbars were missing and nothing would pan the window. Two-finger pinch would zoom in and out, but no panning.
