  • crash Foxit Reader freezes when two-finger scrolling with Wacom tablet

    I really like Foxit reader and I love my Wacom Bamboo tablet.
    I've been using the tablet to replace the mouse for my workstation and it's worked well for all my favorite applications, except Foxit. Whenever I scroll with two fingers in Foxit reader, the page moves a couple of millimeters and then Foxit freezes and Windows throws a pop-up letting me know that the program has "stopped working."

    I can scroll using the left click button on my tablet and using the "hand," to push the pages up and down, but this is cumbersome and not nearly as useful and fluid as two-finger scrolling.

    Any ideas? Is this a known bug? A version issue? A driver issue? (My Bamboo drivers are up to date.)

    Windows 7 64 on a Dell Precision 7500.
