  1. Two Finger Scrolling Inverted but Only in Word


    I have my Dell Inspiron touchpad set such that two-finger scrolling moves the page down if I swipe up and up if I swipe down. This is essentially the way you scroll when using a touch-screen. This setup works perfectly in every app (including Excel), but suddenly, after installing an update, Word 365 has inverted the scrolling. I have to swipe down to move the page down in Word. If I change my touchpad settings to invert the scrolling, it works the way I want in Word, but then it's inverted in every other app. This is obviously rather frustrating. I've attempted to uninstall and reinstall Office several times and even tried a different version of Office, and the issue persists. Any ideas?

    :)
