Mouse Wheel Support

Recommended Posts

Hello all:

 

As I am sure we all have learned, entering a plan with many waypoints in the GPS is tedious.

 

PDMG (bless them) have realized this and on Pg 8 of Tutorial #1, state that "In order to get mouse wheel support, which will increase the speed of entering the plan, you may want to click on the screen of the GPS to pop out the 2D pop up"

 

Did all that but I have not been able to get the mouse wheel to assist.

 

At this rate, carpal tunnel surgery will be inevitable!! :-) :-)

 

Any help is always greatly appreciated.

 

Roberto

Are you attempting to use the mouse wheel on the knobs of the 2D pop up?

Yes Kyle. Thanks for being prompt.

 

I wait for the "arcs with + or - sign" to show up and move the wheel.

 

I can get the cursor knobs to work with left or right button clicks.

Are you using any plugins that modify the behavior of the mouse wheel?

Hello Kyle:

 

I don't think so.

 

I installed XSquawkbox for both IVAO and VATSIM. I do not think that they modify the mouse.

 

The other plugin I installed, is Joan Perez Cauhe's PythonScriptsNetinstaller (pushback, NOAA, etc.) and I do not believe that they would affect the mouse either, but I will check with him and advice.

 

Thank you!

Hello again Kyle:

 

Got an idea from a comment on another post and disabled all plug ins, except the PMDG one.

 

Unfortunately I could still not get the mouse wheel to assist with GPS entries.

 

As you scratch your head, any further ideas/questions are appreciated.

 

Many regards,

Roberto
