Remap Mouse Scroll Wheel - From Vertical to Horizontal Scrolling

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since I generally record voiceovers, I rarely have enough tracks to require vertical scrolling. But with long audio takes, I need horizontal scrolling almost constantly. It would be much appreciated if I could remap the mouse wheel to accomplish this, perhaps under Preferences > Customization > Keyboard Shortcuts, or thereabouts. Thanks.

Yes, Jorge, Alt+Scroll Wheel does perform this function now, but that requires two hands. I would like to remap so it can be done with just the scroll wheel.

Yikes. I'm an idiot. It's not horizontal SCROLLING I'm looking for, but horizontal ZOOMING. In other words, remap from VERTICAL SCROLLING to HORIZONTAL ZOOMING. The latter is what currently can be done with Alt+Scroll Wheel. It is also the function that I need more or less every time I reach for the mouse... 

I'm quite aware that this remap is not currently possible. (I already have a side-scrolling mouse, remapped for other functions.)

I have a Logitech Marathon Mouse M705, which has 4 buttons plus wheel. Pushing the wheel left and right scrolls horizontally.

I have the 2 extra buttons on the left side programmed for Ctrl and Alt, which makes for some mighty fine single-handed mouse-only operation.

Any reputable 4-button mouse should be able to get you there, using app-specific button assignments.

I mentioned learning autohotkey in your other thread on this subject

Here is the complete script to add to the default autohotkey script found in your documents directory after adding the program.

SetTitleMatchMode RegEx ; used for the i) switch in the WinActive test
;remap Wheel to ALT+Wheel for horizontal zooming in CbB
#If WinActive("ahk_exe i)Cakewalk.exe")
WheelDown::!WheelDown
WheelUp::!WheelUp
#If
