I am relatively new to Macs and Aperture (last November) and have always enjoyed using the left/right swiping gesture to move between photos in Aperture and iPhoto.

However, since the upgrade to Mountain Lion, this left/right swiping does not seem to be working properly in Aperture. (And yes, gestures is turned on in Aperture preferences and the gesture still works fine in iPhoto.)

Anybody else with this problem?

Any solutions?

    I had the same problem. When I was looking around in the preferences I found that under general the 'scroll to navigate photos in the viewer' option was not turned on. I never touched that tick box before and I had no problem in Lion. But I ticked it now and it works now.

    Stange isn't it? It was working fine under Lion yet I never touched a tick box to get it to work. Apparently something changed under the hood.

    Yes, I pointed out in another topic that you found the fix over here. Funny thing was if I tried enough every once in awhile I could get the photo to swap. Must have been getting down in the previews.

    I just purchased a MBPro (photographer) and that was a function that was not working (very frustrating).  I re-installed Aperture - no luck.  I JUST finished RE-INSTALLING Mountain Lion (as per instructions by Apple Support - it CLEANED this thing back to zero).  After reinstalling OS, Aperture (and now all of my Adobe products need to be RE downloaded and installed... ) This was not working again.   Do I wish I'd found this post FIRST.  I go online... find this post... and I could have saved HOURS by checking 1 box.  Pardon my rant... and thank you to Locomotief for the simple fix.  I hope others find this before wasting hours trouble shooting this very simple yet frustrating 'error' - or reinstalling OS!!
