Additional information

You can download these Gifs/videos that show what is going on. When I am scrolling in these, I am using the trackpad.


Seems like it takes a few seconds and then it can scroll in the sandbox. Initial opening of the sandbox I scrolled on the trackpad and then scrolling worked fine on my mouse.

Second time I was only scrolling on the mouse and once I switched files, I was able to scroll.

does it happen with another mouse?

Yes, it happens with my MX Master 3 and an Apple Magic Mouse.
