Re:



Wengier,

Good idea.

Regards,
Harry

Hi Harry,

I think an even better solution would be to use some hotkey (e.g. the middle mouse button) to switch between vertical and horizontal mouse wheel movements. This way both vertical and horizontal mouse wheel movements should work even if the mouse itself does not have the horizontal wheel. After all, the mouse wheel is much more comfortable to use than mouse buttons when it comes to scrolling, and with this there will be completely no conflicts with the standard mouse features either.

Progress continues.

Wouldn't a conflict between XyWrite and other DOS programs regarding mouse
response be handled by something like WHEELMOD settings?

Harry
