I always find myself wanting to both scroll and zoom my pages with my mouse wheel, so setting either of the options still leaves me wanting more. So I am proposing that you can do both based on the cursor position. So you should be able to zoom when you are rolling the mouse wheel within the page bounds/ bleed bounds (in the horizontal direction) and that you can scroll through pages when you are outside of the page bounds. In case there is any content outside the page and you were already scrolling, you'll continue scrolling and if you were not scrolling in the last x ms, then you'll zoom into this content if it is below the cursor.
As many design tools(Sketch, Figma, Framer...etc) use ⌘ + mouse wheel to zoom in/out, Affinity Serif uses ⌥+mouse wheel that is pretty special. I understand it's a hard-corded modifier but still want to suggest to change the function to fit design experience. While I change different tools, I always mess up the function. I know "use mouse wheel to zoom" is an alternative solution but it's not instinct for beginners. Please consider about this. 😃
Affinity's use of the mousewheel is very helpful indeed. Adding this feature to panels such as Character and Paragraph would speed up ones work flow. Currently I must move my mouse over to these panels and manually scroll down.
