Default Horizontal Scrolling.


First time posting here. I've recently moved from Mac to PC and I'm still using the Magic Mouse however horizontal scrolling wont work on pro tools, just wondering if anyone knows a fix for this?

Probably time for a new mouse My fairly cheap Logitech G300S handles horizontal scrolling by holding the SHIFT key and rolling the scroll wheel on the mouse. How does the Magic Mouse handle scrolling up/down? If it does allow scroll up/down, then holding the SHIFT key should change that motion to horizontal

"horizontal scrolling "
try system prefs>mouse

works like a track pad --two finger maybe.

Not likely on PC though.

Logitech M500 here and programmed for individual software with X-Mouse Button Control. The best mouse driver on Windows and it's free.

I'd be way slow in PT without my mouse shortcuts. And with 5 layers I could have up to 35 different shortcuts on the mouse, but I'd never remember them all. Although I do have one layer for regular editing and one for reading to video.
