Bug Description

Calibre 2.74 [64bit]
Windows 10
One of the new touch gestures in the Viewer lets you skip chapters by swiping up or down. In any other program when you swipe up you are moving forward in the document and down moves backward. I know this seems counter-intuitive reading it (swiping up goes down? Wat?) but if you think about how touch works its as if you are grabbing the document with your finger, so as you move your finger up a document you can see more of what's below, because you are moving the document up. Anyway, this is how every other program behaves and it's confusing for Calibre to act differently.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
