Smooth Scrolling using mouse wheel

Post by null_subject »

Currently, in the browser view, scrolling with the mouse wheel is done in increment matching your thumbnail height. There is a checkbox to disable this in the options, but then scrolling is done page by page (PgUp PgDn behavior).

I suggest adding a "smooth scroll" option so that mouse wheel scrolling can be incremented by a customizable fixed height—the way that browsers, and some advanced file managers like Directory Opus work. I don't mean adding a delayed animation so that the move is done pixel by pixel over time (although that would also be a nice option for some users), I mean making it so that the scrolling increment can be reduced to less than a large thumbnail's height.

Currently, when unchecking the setting "View scroll the content by thumbnail", vertical scrolling using the mouse wheel is almost pagewise scrolling and thus very coarse - even coarser than in XnView Classic. A finer default and a user-defined setting would be good.

It makes it very difficult to keep track of where you are when navigating a folder with very large thumbnails (when preselecting shots, for example).
