Sims 4 Trackpad gestures not working properly since June patch

Update 16/07/19 – This issue has now been fixed in the July patch, 1.53.115.1220.

Users are reporting that their Trackpad gestures aren’t working properly since updating their game to 1.52.100.1220 today (18/06/19). We have a thread running at Answers HQ about this, please take a minute to post the following if you are experiencing issues with your in-game Trackpad controls since updating your game:

  • List of gestures you normally use the Trackpad for (e.g. swipe or pinch to zoom)
  • Have you changed any default Trackpad settings in System Preferences?
  • Your Mac info: click on the Apple in the menu bar > About This Mac and post these details about your Mac:
    • macOS version
    • Model
    • Processor
    • Memory
    • Graphics

One or other of the Zoom and Rotate functions will work using the trackpad but not both, depending on which action you first used when you started playing. Please make sure to click the all important Me Too button on the AHQ thread too. Remember, EA need to know what Mac you are on in order to try and narrow down the cause. The more people who provide their specs. the better 🙂

To get around this issue and still be able to zoom and pinch in your game:

Zoom – two finger swipe up and down the trackpad (like scrolling up and down a page) or use the + and – keys.

Rotate – use the < and > keys.
