Mouse Wheel Scrolling PrimalScript 2009

ok, well that was quick. I was using an app called Wizmouse. Looking in the setting of that I noticed it emulates mouse scrolling for applications that do not support it. I disabled that and scrolling in Primalscript works correctly now. Still weird that your application was the only one effected by the setting. Maybe further investigation is needed to understand why and control the issue.

We are not doing anything in regards to mousewheel scrolling than what is prescribed by the Windows API. There is no code whatsoever in PrimalScript that makes it scroll sideways with a mousewheel.
I am using the same MS software on a test system without any ill effect. We usually find that some other third party software interferes.
Can you tell me what else you are running on your system?

We found that this software indeed sends a horizontal scroll message if the mouse cursor is on a PrimalScript editing windows.
It appears, since the embedded window has only horizontal splitter rather then both a horizontal AND a vertical splitter that WizMouse wrongfully assumes the Window can only be scrolled sideways.

We have added the additonal splitter to the next service build and even though this is not particularly useful for code editing, it will avoid the issue seen with software like this.

Thank you for your input.
