10.7: Reverse Reversed Scrolling direction
Authored by: DrLex on Aug 04, '11 02:33:40AM

The new way of scrolling is all good if you're only going to work on Macs running Lion. For the trackpad it certainly makes perfect sense and the two-finger scrolling is unique to Macs anyway so there is no potential for confusion on PC laptops. But for a mouse it is different. The concept of mapping the top of the scroll wheel to a movement in the same way as swiping fingers over a trackpad is less obvious to start with. But I could get used to it, if it weren't for the fact that I have to work five days a week on a PC with an almost identical scroll wheel mouse and I also occasionally boot my Mac into Boot Camp.

The end result is that I scroll in the wrong direction in all operating systems about half of the time. I really would appreciate a separate setting for the mouse and trackpad in Lion. Or, a simple way to reverse the scroll direction in other operating systems :)
