WTF?
OK, a 'feature' on PSP7 has been bugging me for a while now ( the mouse wheel which is and always was a scroll wheel, zooms ) so tonight I decided to check if there's a way to stop this. Nope! :-((

It appears a bunch of bozos thought this was a good idea ( obviously hadn't the energy to move the mouse to the zoom icon, click the button, move back onto the image and click again ) and because the shouted long enough and loud enough Jasc humoured them.

Current Mood: pissed off pissed off

Has been like that since about version 5. Makes sense to me - you often need to scroll around sideways as well as up and down, and you have to move to do that, so it isn't adding to work when moving both ways, while scrolling can be just for a closer look at an area in view...

It's swings and roundabouts. I've worked with apps that allowed you to scroll sideways using the wheel by the simple expedient of moving the mouse over the horizontal scroll bar; this allows rapid positioning in two dimensions with very little shifting of the mouse (on or off the scroll bar to dictate dimension of movement). On the other hand, I've no problems with the MS Photo Editor approach that centres the zoom on the current mouse position, rather than the current frame, so that it's fast to zoom out, move and zoom in again.

I promised I'm not stressed about it now! :-))

Looks like some of you like the feature, it would have been nice though if they'd put an option flag for it. I mainly use the program for browsing digital gallerys so scrolling down a portrait format image with the wheel was something I liked.
