Default Horizontal Scrolling on Windows 7 (PT9)

Hi everyone,
I'm starting to work with PT9 on PC (I was working on PT7 with mac) and trying to make the horizontal scroll working !
For me it's very important to have a mouse with a 360 scroll... I can't find a way to make my Mighty Mouse working on the PC... (just the horizontal scrolling is not working with it)

Is there a way ? Do you know another mouse that is working ? (I saw some with 2 scroll - one for verticall et one horizontal)

I read forums, try drivers, etc... But not working.
And I don't want to try buying a mouse if it's not working with it.

Thanks a lot,
Regards

Romain

Try holding the SHIFT key. That works on my Win7 rig with a Logitech mouse

Thanks for the answer albee1952.
Yeah, I know that. But what I would like to do is scrolling horizontally with just the mouse (like the Apple Mighty Mouse). Not by pressing any key.
So I'd like to know if any mouse with multidirectionnal scroll works with PT9 ?
Or if someone successfully tried to do it with the Mighty Mouse on PC.

:)

I don't know about 9, but on HD8 with a MacPro the scrolling worked just like in OSX; IE you could scroll horizontally with a mouse that had that option.

I can't access settings of the Mighty Mouse in the Windows Control Panel.
I tried a freeware "X-Mouse Button Control" that make the horizontal scroll working. It works well (with firefox, word...) but not with PT9 !! Too bad!

Ok, so I think I have to test with a logitech or microsoft mouse that have an horizontal scroll. If someone has a feedback with a non-apple mouse ? :)

would this mouse work?..i haven't personally tried it but, it has a tilt wheel for side scrolling (not a ball).

http://www.logitech.com/en-in/mice-p...e/devices/6540


i switched to win7 a year ago from a G5ppc with mighty mouse, i had the same compatibility problems. so i adapted the hold SHIFT and side scroll workflow technique. it was weird at first. but after a week, i must say that, it IS the right way to work. 10x smoother and more accurate side scrolling. but yeah, you need two hands on deck

Rastafarai ! I did it !

So, for those interested about scrolling horizontally with the Apple Mighty Mouse on PT9 PC version :
Download the great freeware X-Mouse Button Control here :
http://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/X...tonControl.htm

Then, you can access the settings of all your mouse.
Create a profile by clicking "Add".
Then go search the "protools.exe" launcher.
In the settings "Tilte Wheel Left" and "Tilt Wheel Right", go to : Simulated Keys (undefined).
We're gonna define it !

Enter in the blank this for the left wheel : {CTRL}{SHIFT}{MWUP}
and this for the right wheel : {CTRL}{SHIFT}{MWDN}

By scrolling horizontally, it will emulate the CTRL + SHIFT + WHEEL.

Then apply, and go enjoy your horizontal scroll in PT ! :)

ps:

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think PT9 PC don't understand the horizontall scroll of mouses... I've tested it with a Logitech mouse (one like grendizer mentionned before) and it doesn't work.

Wow ! This is truly awesome !
I was always searching for a thing like this and I gave up my little finger stuck on shift ! :)

Do you think it would work with this mouse too?
http://www.logitech.fr/fr-fr/product...uch-mouse-t630

Did you have any compatibility problem when you press shift while you're scrolling horizontally?
