Using the trackpad, the scrolling in emacs/spacemacs is notably less smooth than in modern browsers and other editors. I have to confess that this jerkiness irks me more than I would prefer but I have not found a way to improve that situation. It is especially distracting once non-text elements appear on screen (e.g. inline images) but the problem is bad enough with text-only.
Is this an emacs problem that everyone has learned to accept or is there a solution that everyone is using without even thinking of it?
Any help would be much appreciated, especially if it was assuming little background knowledge (I am a neophyte and only using emacs b/c of org-mode). Thanks
I am using spacemacs 0.200.13 based on emacs 25.3.1 on a Macbook w/ macOS 10.13.4
