Scrollable lists became very slow to scroll
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It looks like that the recent change to config-defined scroll speeds instead of hardcoded scroll speeds has made the default scroll speed for lists painfully slow, it affects the controls menu and all editor dropdowns and lists.


Legacy ID
Menu UI
Steps To Reproduce
  1. From the main menu open Configure > Controls
  2. Scroll the control list with the mousewheel, notice that the scroll speed is very slow
  3. Go back to the Configure menu
  4. Open Profile then edit a profile
  5. Open the "Face" dropdown and use the mousewheel to scroll through the faces, notice that the scroll speed is very slow
Additional Information

Having a reasonable scroll speed for mousewheel scroll in the menus is very important for long lists as the scroll knob can get very small and useless.

Currently a single full scroll swipe of the mousewheel barely scrolls over a single menu item.

Tested with Logitech MX518 and Logitech G400.

I'd suggest to read this - HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\WheelScrollLines value so that everyone can set scroll speed he likes.

This has been made better for the lists like the controls list (1 notch scrolls 2 lines), but the dropdown lists are still scrolling very slowly.

I'd agree with sms' suggestion to use the OS mouse preference if possible.

This is driving me freaking insane.

Why is this not urgent priority?! >:@

EXE rev. 112641

Tweaked: ScrollBar scrollSpeed

Speed is the exact same.

Speed is the exact same.

Can confirm, still no change, dropdown lists are still painfully slow to scroll.

ComboBox scrolling should be faster in 113258. Could you please confirm it works better? Thanks in advance.

The update today was 113238 and it's still slow there, will report back when 113258 is released.

I just wanted to let you know asap:) The change will take effect in 113258 (most probably tomorrow's dev).

I just wanted to let you know asap:)

Thanks, the built number you gave and yesterday's build number were just off by one digit, I thought it was a typo!

I can confirm that the ComboBox scrolling is better now and I consider it resolved for the purposes of this ticket. It scrolls 1 line per mousewheel "tick".

While it would be nice to sync it with the Windows "lines per scroll" as sms says, it is no longer frustrating as it used to be.

Mass-closing resolved issues updated only last year - assuming fixed correctly.
