Description (last modified by treyturner)

I'm extremely happy to have ScummVM sideloaded on my iPad Pro! The only thing that would make it better is support for the Apple Magic Keyboard with trackpad that was just released.

Using 2.1.1, the touchpad is treated like a touch-emulator; the in-game cursor remains stationary unless the touchpad is clicked and dragged. Usability is frequently even more difficult than touch due to awkwardness of selecting pop-over menus such as can be found across the top of many SCI games.

It might also be worth mentioning there's no escape key on this keyboard, so perhaps a key combination could be implemented as a shortcut to further improve usability. Apparently the standard is to use Command + . but using this combination in-game with the keyboard enabled via pinch doesn't seem to produce a response.

Thanks for your work on ScummVM and your consideration of this feature request.
