Trackpad gestures stop working after Macbook is put to sleep

Trackpad gestures stop working after Macbook is put to sleep. Each time i need to quit rhino and reopen. I’ve tested trying to repeat it when i close the Macbook or put it to sleep it doesn’t repeat the behaviour, so it is occasional, but has happened many times, especially when using the laptop intermittently and is annoying enough to let you know.

I caught it in the wild. Had my mac close for a few minutes and it happened again. Quitting Rhino and restarting the program was the only way to fix it.

This one is a bit of a “white-whale” for us:

RH-70694 Trackpad on Mac stopped working correctly after laptop sleeps

we’ve all experienced it, but have had a horrible time reproducing and debugging it.

If you need any help its still happening with an up to date Rhino 7 (not upgraded to 8 yet). It tends to happen after the mac has gone to sleep and woken up again. What is most frustrating is having to close the program, that means, if I have multiple windows open, I need to close them all and open them all again. Its such a shame because the track pad is sooooo well integrated into Rhino for Mac its a dream otherwise.
