Uncontrolled scrolling in the input fields

Recommended Posts

If you scroll with the mouse wheel over an input field (without clicking), the values in this field are changed. I encourage you to rethink this functionality. In scrollable areas of the program interface, such as the control panels, this is unsuitable. As soon as the mouse pointer reaches an input field while scrolling the area, the focus is on this field, which is then changed. This is particularly disadvantageous if one no longer knows which value was previously in the corresponding field.

Instead I recommend to activate the input fields by clicking in this field. Then you can change the value with the mouse wheel and the arrow keys.  Especially in the panels this method is preferable.

This behavior is the same in all affinity apps.

Are we the only two who find this behaviour disturbing? Or have most simply not noticed it yet?! :35_thinking:

Yes, adding a extra click will make it explicit if the user wants ro scroll or to change the value.

I also see the usability problem here. It's one of the "rough edges".

Your solution will do.

I did not feel the need to respond until now since it's obvious to me that you are right. Here you have my explicit confirmation.

I'm glad you make me feel like I'm not a anorak 9_9
If nobody says it, it won't be changed either.
