Scroll Acceleration feature request Mon Nov 24, 2008 10:57 am  •   #3603

Hi Ken.

Once again - great program.

I wonder if in a future iteration of the program it would be possible to have a scrolling acceleration feature (maybe also for each of horizontal and vertical axes of scrolling) similar to the current cursor acceleration control. Pick a curve or create one yourself! It just seems as if choosing basically a single number to scroll is a bit limiting, especially if in the same application one would like to have fine control for moving up and down a bit, but would also like to be able to scroll quickly to go down a number of pages quickly if need be.

Enjoying the program....

Yes, this is something that I would like to add in the next major version. It is one of those things that gets requested from time to time.

One more vote for scroll acceleration (with a twist).

On my mouse (IBM TouchPoint) the horizontal scrolling direction seems to be inverted - something to keep in mind when implementing scroll acceleration.

For now it looks like I have to embark on the Virtual Mouse adventure. Ouch!

That's a new one for me.

Scroll acceleration has definitely been mentioned before and is on the list of things I want to do.

I solved it by creating a new virtual mouse - "the scroller":
1) I switched off scrolling on the original mouse,
2) translated the vertical scrolling 1:1 from real into the virtual, and
3) multiplied z-Axis by -1

That did it beautifully.
I will post the pictures when I figure out where to host them reliably.

Thanks again for a wonderful product, Ken!

Hi everyone,

I am using this setup to emulate a scrolling wheel on my Logitech trackball. Moving the trackball slowly (quickly) scrolls a bit too little (much) for my uses.

Is this what you refer to as "scrolling acceleration"?

Has this been implemented yet? I could not find it on the configuration page of my virtual scrolling mouse.

Different people may have different definitions of scroll acceleration, but I would define it simply as being able to change the sensitivity of the scroll wheel based on how fast it is turning. For example, you would get small scroll jumps when turning the wheel slowly, but larger jumps when turning it faster.

It is another of the items on my list of things to add to ControllerMate.

Great, thank you for the explanation!

EDIT: I keep the vote for now and will use it after having purchased the CM license. Smile
