Scrolling in SAS Studio "Code" window

[ Edited ]

Dear all,

 

is it possible to decrease scrolling increment in SAS Studio "Code" window ?

 

Now, in my case 1 mouse wheel turn = 17 lines:

1 scroll increment results in the 17th line position:

For me it is very annoying. Is there a way to overcome this?

 

Thank you.

Hi @stan

 

I think that behaviour is controlled by your mouse settings.

 

If you go to your mouse properties, from the WHEEL tab in my case you can control how many lines it would jump to.

Hope that helps.

Hi @Damo, I forgot to say that it hadn't worked. But thanks for your reply.

Hi @stan

 

Weird, it worked for me: Changing the wheel setting changed the behaviour on my side.

If you do the same with notepad for instance, what is the result?

Overall, I'm pretty sure this isn't a property you can control on the SAS side.

Hi @stan

 

Strange, indeed.

 

Checking around, it can be related to a Windows Update (and may not be specific to SAS products).

Do you have the behaviour since using SAS Studio and did you have a Windows update installed lately?

 

Overall, if you're using that OS, did you try to modify Windows 10 style Mouse & Touchpad settings ?

 

Cheers,
Damo

Hi @Damo,

 

The scrolling issue besides my laptop appears in another PC (Win7x32) as well. And I don't remember when it began actually... several months at least. I modified only cursor style in both machines. Operating systems are updated regularly.

 

A couple of days ago I have found out that my home laptop's touchpad works _fine_ (Win10x64) --- scrolling is smooth (line by line).

Hello, @Damo

 

UPDATE:

In Firefox 58.0.2 (64-bit):
In Code tab: the step is 7 lines
in Log tab: the step is approx. 6 lines

In Chrome 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit):
In Code tab: the step is 17 lines
in Log tab: the step is approx. 6 lines

Hi @stan


Thanks for keeping us posted.

 

Your tests seem to confirm the behaviour is not related to SAS Studio but the browser you're using.

I can see it's possible to change the speed for firefox as per https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/1019147

Regarding Chrome, an extension might be required, for instance https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions

 

Hope that helps.


Cheers,

I have the same problem. The code screen advances 17 lines per wheel "click" in Chrome. It makes it terribly difficult to understand where one is in the flow of the code when the screen is shifting so jerkily.

While this may vary from browser to browser, it is not strictly a browser problem. Chrome respects the settings in my mouse properties menu in all pages EXCEPT  SAS Studio.

In fact, scrolling in the Code tab is discrete but in the Log it is flowing which allows to follow the lines by eyes (Firefox 60.0.1) yet contradicts with Windows' settings.
