Re: [cdt-dev] Mouse Wheel Line Scroll Count Problem

Hi Merrill,

Could you try with the "plain" text editor? To do that, you right-click on the file, Open Width, Text Editor. In any case, it would be probably best to create a bug in Bugzilla

Subject: [cdt-dev] Mouse Wheel Line Scroll Count Problem

I am running Eclipse 4.5.0 64-bit (and 4.4.2 64-bit previously), with
CDT, on Windows 7.1 64-bit.

I have the Windows mouse set to scroll 3 lines with each click of the
mouse wheel.  That works fine in Windows outside of Eclipse.

In Eclipse, the files in some tabs scroll 3 lines/click while others
scroll only 1 line/click.  The main files I edit are .cpp and .h file,
but the file extension doesn't seem to make a difference.

It's like there is a Windows Preference difference between some files
(rather than an Eclipse-wide preference); but I haven't been able to
find a mouse wheel line count items in any Windows Preference dialog.

If it makes a difference, I have the workspace and all files set to UTF-8.

This problem is unrelated to the question/complaint of whether the mouse
wheel scrolls the window under the mouse vs the windows that has focus.

Any ideas as to why the mouse wheel scrolls different amounts in
different tabs?
