Change of numeric values when scrolling with mouse wheel

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if there is a setting in Preferences that allows to specify whether using the mouse wheel when the mouse pointer is on top of a numeric text box control increases / decreases the current values, but if not, I wish one could be added.

I very often use the mouse wheel simply to scroll hidden control panels in view, and do not always remember to keep the mouse pointer in a neutral area, and accordingly end up changing settings inadvertently. Being able to restrict change of numerical values of settings in situations where the text box has first be given the input focus by clicking within the text box would be a valuable addition.

This has come up a few times on other threads too... there is not currently such a setting, but I agree that this should only happen when the focus is in the control.

If I remember correctly (not on a computer with a scroll-wheel mouse, right now), the Character Panel (or possibly Paragraph panel?) in Publisher was modified to only respond to the wheel for scrolling, not for making adjustments, to avoid exactly that problem.
