Clear description of the problem:

Hey, this isn't an issue, I just can't figure out how to do what I'd like to, and I'm wondering if i'ts possible. I had originally mapped my scroll wheel to zoom in and out of my editing timeline, however I'd like to be able to use the scroll wheel as a normal scroll wheel for other windows in my editing system. The first thing I tried was to create the hotkey for just that specified window, but it just won't grab it, it always grabs all of the windows in the program. So I thought, what if I could map the scroll wheel up / down to zoom in and out only when the right mouse button, or another button, is pressed in. Is there anyway to do that? Or another way to do what I'm trying to do?

Thanks,
Dan

Yes, you are looking for the option called "button chording".
Set the right mouse button to "button chording" then change the scroll wheel on there (it opens up a new window).

That way, when you hold the right button down, it will change the behavior of the scroll wheel. There are some options in there about how to handle the right button when to cancel the chord etc. play around and find the most suitable configuration for you usage.

Thanks,
Phil
