10.3: Scroll Open/Save dialogs horizontally via scroll wheel Apps
Here's a quickie ... while hovering your mouse over the horizontal scrollbar in Panther's Save and Open dialogs, you can use the mouse wheel to scroll left and right.

[robg adds: I don't recall that this worked in Jag, and there are no hints about it, so I think it's new...]

just a quick note, that trick doesn't work in Jag. Mouse is a Logitech MX700, using native OS X drivers 10.2.8 (not the crappy logitech drivers).

This functionality exists in Jaguar, perhaps earlier versions also. Press and hold Shift and move the scroll wheel up or down over a window with a horizontal scrollbar to perform a horizontal scroll. For Panther, the old way still works. To avoid having to use the Shift key to perform horizontal scroll wheel scrolling, place the mouse OVER ANY PART of the actual horizontal scrollbar graphics, then roll the scroll wheel up or down to perform a horizontal scroll. Very nifty for column views AND web pages that are wider than your browser window.

On Jag, you use Shift key+scrollwheel to scroll horizontal on any window, not only on save/open dialogs, at least with the Logitech mouse:)

Confirmation that it doesn't work on Jaguar

I haven't installed Panther yet, and I can confirm that this hint does not work on Jaguar -- I tried it in the "Save" dialogue in Safari. So this is definitely new to Panther.

I'm guessing that in Jag it may be based on the mouse you are using. I've got a MacAlly iOpti Jr and can't make horizontal scrolling work with or without the shift key.

Okay, I take that back. Works in some dialog boxes, not in others. Didn't work in the Safari save dialog box, but has worked in an Illustrator filter import dialog box.

Strange.

(BTW, this is all in Jaguar - my Panther hasn't arrived yet from MacMall)

This worked in Jag for me with a Microsoft Intellimouse and a Logitech Wireless. Not just open/save either, every window I can think of that supported vertical scrolling supported horizontal scrolling. Must be a driver issue, because I've been doing this for a while.
