Mouse wheel problem in Xara Designer software

Post by apostol » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:39 pm


I've been using X-Mouse Button Control for a long time now, also along with my favourite graphics software - Xara Designer. The way I use it is to remap the middle click to mouse button #4, so that I could pan more easily with my thumb.
I have installed Windows 10 onto my laptop, and also the latest version of Xara (Xara Designer 12). The button remapping still works like a charm - but, the problem is that the mouse wheel (not remapped in any way) refuses to work while X-Mouse Button Control is active. If I close it, it will work normally, but the button remapping will be lost.

Any ideas on this? Thanks a lot,

The first thing to try, is disabling "Make scroll wheel scroll window under cursor" in general settings. If that makes a difference, then we know what to focus on.


PS. I'm away this weekend so responses will be sporadic.
