Disabling zoom using cmd+scroll

Post by Kanes » Thu Aug 20, 2015 11:05 am

Is there a way to disable font size change / zooming with cmd + mouse wheel? It is rather annoying, as if you're scrolling around in the editor and for example switch to another program with cmd + tab, the editor still reads the mouse buffer and accidentally zooms the text in or out.
This is clearly a bug as I find it hard to see this as an intended feature; disabling it entirely or remapping it to a keyboard shortcut would eliminate the problem easily for the time being.

This is a builtin feature of Scintilla (the editor componenet), I guess we could add an option to disable this.
Can you please submit a feature request on GitHub?

Also: CMD+/ will restore the zoom to normal

This doesn't seem to work with a Finnish keyboard layout - so it's not mapped to '/' character but a certain keymap keycode instead?
Any idea where that could be found in keyboard layouts other than US?
Is it remappable?

So no bonus for laptops? (Also, didn't work on an external keyboard either, with the numpad "/").

This is now fixed. I added new option in Settings->Global Editor Preferences->General->Edit->Enable Mouse Zoom
where you can disable this functionality

(On OSX, its under CodeLite->Global Editor Preferences->General->Edit->Enable Mouse Zoom)

In 8.2.3 it seems to be under Codelite => Global Editor Preferences => Editor => Edit => Enable Mouse Zoom, not General => etc

The setting doesn't seem to affect the Diff view - the cmd + mouse wheel still zooms there regardless of the setting.
Also the visual theme (tab colors etc) looks different in Diff than normal editor.
