Need an option to disable reverse scrolling direction on DRP

Post by bfrechette » Mon Mar 13, 2017 3:28 pm

Hi,

As a long time Macintosh user I love the reverse scroll direction and the scroll window under the mouse pointer.
I use X-Mouse Button Control on the PC at the office (Windows 7 Pro).

But when I am connected remotely (RDP) from my Mac I have to disable reverse scrooling (the mac natural scrooling is already reversed). I have to re-enable it when I come back to the office.

I found anoying to switch this setup twice a day.

Can you please add an option to disable reverse scrolling direction when connected by DRP.
(or enable reverse scrolling direction only when connected locally.)

Thanks for your great job!

Bernard

Yes, I can do that I expect - right now we have the global option to disable XMBC completely on RDP but I guess thats a little too course!

I'll add it to the TODO list!

Thanks,
Phil

Actually, if you setup a profile for RDP (mstsc.exe normally) then you can just un-tick the invert scrolling on that profile - that should do the trick.
Remote Desktop.xmbcs
See attached example.... Let me know if it works :)

That profile solution will work if I use mstsc.exe from a PC running XMouse Button Control to connect elsewhere.

But I'm connected from a Macintosh (RDP for Mac) to the PC running XMouse Button Control so the profile don't work (it's not used in fact).

That why I need an option to globally disable (or preferably toggle to respect the profiles) the reverse scrolling option when it is on the server side of the connection.

(Client Mac or PC) ---> (Server PC 2 running XMouse) : toggle scroll direction on PC 2 XMouse's.

Thanks again.

Got it :).

So if I add a new option globally, next to the existing "Disable XMBC in RDP sessions" to "ignore inverse scroll in RDP sessions" that would be best for you (and easiest for me too)?

Thanks,
Phil

I've added an option (in 2.16 Beta 4) on the general settings tab to disable inverted scroll when running in RDP.
Please try it and let me know if it works for you (it seems to work OK here).

Thanks,
Phil
