Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:


found on IE11

  1. Open IE11

  2. Navigate to:

  3. Use finger to scroll in textarea (this should work) do not remove this finger

  4. With scroll finger still down, apply another finger and pinch to zoom.

  5. Notice zoom. Pinch to zoom should be prevented on the textarea.

In the wild this is problematic if one finger in the pinch to zoom touch action lands and begins moving before the other.

Expected Results:


The expected behavior based on the docs is that whenever -ms-touch-action: pan-y is the rule, only pan events should be processed prevent pinch to zoom.

Actual Results:

      With touch-action: pan-y rule on an element, if you swipe diagonally up-right at a steep angle, it will act as if you have swiped right. This isn’t always reproducable, but by swiping in said manner a few times it should happen.
