Description brutzman 2008-01-21 20:32:54 UTC
recommend adding shift + mouse wheel to scroll the edit window left/write

this is particularly helpful when also using regular mouse wheel to scroll the
window up/down, and control + mouse wheel to zoom magnification in/out

current means of scrolling left/write is to move drag the bar at bottom, which
is clumsy and time consuming

recommended approach of using shift key matches Visio (as do the other Impress
conventions listed here).  wondering if this capability is listed in Java
usability guidelines (probably should be).

thanks for considering this performance-improvement feature

AW: A very good idea, +1 ! Adding some people to CC who may be interested...

If the system sends left/right wheel events (as e.g. X11 does for newer touch
pads, and OSX, of course), this is already working. Window in theory has, since
Vista, similar events, though no mouse driver I know of actually uses them.

Clearly, mapping this inside VCL is little effort, but applications might use
this modifier for other functionality (e.g. as Ctrl for zoom-in/out) - I'd vote
for an application-by-application handling.

Comment 6 Martin Hollmichel 2008-05-16 13:22:00 UTC
seems to be a duplicate to 18421
Comment 7 philipp.lohmann 2008-05-16 13:24:24 UTC
on the contrary, 18421 wants to use shift-wheel for something else

This issue is closed automatically and wasn't rechecked in a current version of
