Odd auto-scrolling of timeline
by Paul Bryant on Apr 15, 2015 at 10:48:19 pm
I've searched the forum but can't find a thread about this... I'm experiencing a strange feature/bug that's pretty irritating. A few minutes after I start Premiere, the timeline will start scrolling whenever I move my mouse cursor away from the center of the screen. You can see this happening at the link below:
To be clear: this doesn't seem to happen when I first start Premiere. It's usually 5-10 minutes into a session, and then I have to quit and re-start. Is this something I've accidentally turned on, that I can deactivate? It's really annoying to have the timeline scroll to follow my cursor, when I go for my effects or media browser.

I experience the same bug. Move the cursor to the right of the screen, timelines scrolls right by itself, more the left, scrolls left. $50 a month for a creative cloud and we still have to put up with crap like this. Unacceptable. Adobe sucks.

Hi All. I was just having the same issue and like in FCP I deleted preferences and it seems to remove the problem for now.
The problem came back after applying a transition. The plugins were corrupt. If your using third party plugins. Uninstall them then reinstall them. Delete both Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects preferences.

I've got no additional plug-ins installed. Relatively new install of Premiere Pro CC v8.2.0 build. First project on this computer, and I'm getting the odd auto-scrolling issue. Interesting is... I've got one sequence separated from the others. It's on one monitor, while the others are on a second monitor. It seems that the auto-scrolling is only happening on the one timeline I've separated. The other timelines (that are in the main application window) are operating normally!
In my case, closing the sequence window and reopening it resolved the auto-scroll issue.

I will add to the growing list that this has been driving me crazy as well. I personally have only noticed it with a dual monitor setup, but yes, when I move my cursor away from the timeline it starts to autoscroll. Especially annoying when what I'm actually trying to do is grab an effect to apply to a clip—all of a sudden I lose my place on my timeline as to where the clip is. Unacceptable! Hope Adobe gets this bug figured out in the next release...

This has been driving me bonkers! I thought it was my mouse malfunctioning at first and wasted a lot of time trying to clean and repair it. I'm on a dual monitor setup on the mac.
I have my sequence on my big center screen and everything else on the secondary. When I bring the mouse to the left screen to access a bin suddenly the timeline start scrolling. A quit and restart will also clear it up for a while, but it eventually returns.

I was having these issues in PP CC 2014 and when I saw that they released CC 2015, I was hoping that would fix the weird scrolling issue. Unfortunately, it did not. I quit PP when it happens, which temporarily fixes it, but nothing I've done...including closing the sequence, deleting preferences...has been anything but a temporary solution.

I oversee nine late 2013 MacPro 3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5.
Everyone on my team experiences this issue at one point or
another when working in Premiere Pro 2015.
I was hoping the scrolling issue would have gone away with the
new release, but no! The only decent work-around
is to restrict usage of the app to one monitor. Which is backward
I have seen some reports of third party plugins possibly being
the culprit, and will be watching for that in the days to come.
That would jibe with the reports of most that indicate the issue
popping up 5-10 minutes after getting started.
I've alerted my team to this possibility, and will advise further if
we're able to isolate the trigger.
Please let me know if anyone comes up with a real fix in the

Add me to the list. Very annoying. I'm still on CC2014.
What's weird is at work I have a 2 monitor setup and I've never experienced the issue. At home I have a 2 monitor setup and it's a regular occurrence - with the same work machine as well as my laptop. I'm thinking the difference is that at home, with smaller monitors, I have my timeline on one screen and the program window on the other. Maybe that's where the problem shows up? Are y'alls setup similar?
Also, I'm able to fix this without quitting (I hate quitting and reloading in Premiere) by:
a) dragging out sequence to a new window
b) closing sequence window
c) renaming the sequence, then renaming it back to what it was
d) double clicking to open the sequence again.
For some reason, this fixes the problem. Not sure if renaming is a necessary step, but I did it the first time and I'm a slave to the cadence of steps that fixes an annoying-ass bug.
