Scroll left/right keyboard shortcut?
Hi all - can anyone tell me if there are keyboard shortcuts for scroll left/right? I'm using 7.1 and trying to set up a Quick Keys shortcut to scroll left/right by continually holding down one key. Only problem is - if I try to program this shortcut using the scroll arrows in the edit window, Quick Keys gets confused. I know I will be able to program the shortcut to work properly if I can show Quick Keys the scrolling action via keys rather than mouse clicking on the scroll arrows. I already looked in the keyboard shortcuts and found none but thought that maybe someone knew something that I couldn't find? Thanks

This may not be what you are asking about but if you have a scroll-wheel type mouse or trackball - try holding down the Shift key while scrolling the wheel.

Re: Scroll left/right keyboard shortcut?
Yeah, I tried that but no good - not precise enough. What I basically need to do is program one click of the scroll arrow and assign it to a key. That way when I hold down the key, the page will scroll slowly. I'm editing a book on tape and need to let the audio roll by when there's no problems and stop when there is. Holding down a programmed scroll key allows me to track the audio waveforms exactly so that when I stop to make an edit, the audio I need to cut is right in front of me. I haven't done a book edit in a while - last time I did one I was on OS9 and I was able to program this shortcut no problem. OS X/Quick Keys - not so happy. Thanks for replying though

I've wondered about that too. Meanwhile, Option+Page Down or Option+PageUp will take you to the next or previous screen in the Edit Window (like the Page Scroll function).

Thank you so much! That works and saves me many hours and much clicking!!

I have been wondering about this lately as well... the option page down/up thing works, but there has to be something better than this that goes in a slower increment??? On my new mac mouse the scroll wheel did do the horizontal scrolling, but i use a track ball so it doesn't work.

If you set the Transport to the numeric keypad in Prefs, then numbers 1 & 2 provide rewind and fast forward function respectively. Set in conjubction with page scrolling (in Options) and the timeline/edit linked, this works for me.
