Hi all-

I don't have CW9.2 (stopped at 8 and switched to Xcode), but has the 
development group thought to add scrollwheel functionality to the edit 
window? Granted the standard Apple mouse does not have this, but many 
mice do, and I have found it an invaluable feature. It's irksome to have 
the functionality available everywhere *but* Povray.

Just curious,

Ron

This is simply not true.  The mere fact that it requires hacking an
application to get this to do anything shows that only a tiny fraction of
applications support it.  Given there is a even smaller group of users using
anything but the Apple supplied mouse, this feature is somewhere at the very
bottom of the list of things to add.  Sorry!

PS: I believe there are utility programs that allow you to bind the mouse
scroll wheel to scroll bars in windows of any application.

Scrollwheel works with my mouse.
I the Logitech Pro wireless optical mouse, all I had to do was set my
functionality options in the Mouseware control panel.

I can also use the scrollwheel in the render panel and the meassages pane.
