Description jmills 2005-06-25 06:21:17 UTC
There is a new generation of mice - examples from at least Microsoft and
Logitech (eg Logitech Cordless Click! Optical Mouse) where the mouse scroll
wheel can be rocked left/right (as well as pressed and scrolled up/down!)

Office, particularly the spreadsheet, implement this by left/right scrolling of
the window region.

At least in Calc, this enhancement should be made in order to keep place in the

Of course, although written for Windows/Calc, this issue/enhancement should not
be limited to this application or platform.

Please consider making this feature a reality.  I want to leave MS Office but
this is one very helpful feature is found in there yet not here.

Would definitely like to see this feature added. I used to use horizontal
scrolling quite a bit, in ms office, with my logitech mx1000 (bt laser) but
automatically assumed it would be available in oo as well.

I would have thought that this belonged more in "framework" as interface
behaviour should be the same in all modules (else it is not an "integrated"
suite, is it?)

Even more prevalent than tilt wheels are touchpads with horizontal scrolling...
found on laptops of all kinds and on peripheral touchpad devices. Horizontal
scrolling with the touchpad is very ergonomic. I spend nearly all my time in
OpenOffice, so horizontal scrolling support becomes a health issue.
