Is it possible to alter the current behavior of scrolling

Hello, I’ve only recently discovered 010 Editor, I’m currently on the trial and I have to say I’m extremely impressed by how good it is compared to the freeware I was using. But one thing that I find very frustrating is that whenever you move your cursor to an area and scroll, it scrolls the selection rather than the scrollbar, as if you had pressed up and down on the keyboard.

I understand that this behavior can be useful in some scenarios, but I’m finding it really annoying personally. I might get used to it eventually, but I would be extremely grateful if an option could be added to change this behavior. As far as I can tell one does not currently exist.

I’m not asking for the default to be changed though, just for an option to be added to the preferences.

Hello Mikael. Thanks for your message. Yes, I completely agree that there should be an option to turn this off. There isn’t a way to disable it right now but we should be able to add that to our next release. Thanks for the feedback!

Thank you for the quick response. I’m really glad to hear that this feature will be added :smile:.
It was one of the only things that felt worse to me, compared to the editors I am used to using.

Thank you for all of the work you put into this program, It’s really impressive.

I may need examples of your scroll issue as I’m not seeing this.
I can select a block in a file and scroll down but the selection remains where I have it.

The behavior I’m referring to only affects side panes, not the main hex window. If you hover over the “Inspector” pane for instance and scroll you’ll find that the selected item in the pane changes rather than the scrollbar. The scrollbar only moves when your selection moves to an item that is offscreen. This is also the case with other panes like the “Template Result” pane which is honestly where I find it most annoying, as I’m dealing with structures with tons of elements.

This Gif illustrates the behavior I’m describing:


I’m not touching any buttons in that Gif, just scrolling the scroll wheel.

Thank You. I see what you are talking about now.
