Windows 10 Precision Touchpad multi-touch inputs not detected by Blender
Open, Needs Triage by DeveloperPublic

Description

Operating System: Windows 10 Home, Build: 18362
Blender Version: 2.80 (sub 75), Branch: master, Commit Date: 2019-07-29 14:47, Hash: f6cb5f54494e
Drivers tested: (All precision drivers currently available) ELAN, SYNAPTIC, and Standard PS/2
Issue: Blender fails to recognize "Mouse/Trackpad Pan", "Mouse/Trackpad Rotate", "Mouse/Trackpad Zoom" input events. This is crucial for keybinds like View rotate, View pan, etc. when using a trackpad.

Windows precision drivers are becoming standard in many Windows 10 laptops. They support multi-touch functionality, gestures, and improved tracking and are part of the Windows OS. Though, i'm not entirely sure what the API hook looks like.
