[Resolved] Zoom in and out, use mouse wheel instead of ^+mouse wheel?
Good Morning,

Was wondering if anyone knew how to change the zoom in and out behaviour of the middle mouse wheel in Windows GIMP to work without having to press the ^ (control) button on the keyboard? I'm using to zooming in and out using just the mouse wheel alone and hoping that a setting in GIMP could be changed so that it also works without pressing the ^ (control) button at the same time.

I've googled this along with a few other things over last couple of days but no luck. Can this be done?

Thanks. Smile

RE: Zoom in and out, use mouse wheel instead of ^+mouse wheel?
YES! Thanks, it took some doing but I figured out how to edit the entries for SCROLL UP and SCROLL DOWN by adding the ZOOM IN to one and ZOOM OUT to the other in the Main Mouse Wheel option in the Active Controllers column.

Yes, I know this isn't standard mouse movement. I've been using PSP for 12 years now and it's a default for the mouse wheel movement there and I'm used to it after all these years. It's the single biggest "mistake" I make when I move into GIMP even though I found the ^+mouse wheel does the same thing. I'm going to be working in both environments - GIMP when at work using the stick and PSP at home, that I need to standardize behaviours between the two as much as possible <g>. It did take me a long time to get used to this mouse wheel behaviour in PSP way back when but now it's just there and I do it without thinking. Thanks to GIMP for the level of customization that I could change that. One more way it's easier to start using it! <g>

Thanks so much!
