FS#250 - Scrolling in Property Editor changes List Box elements

Bug or Performance Issue? I’m not sure but it regularly trips me up and is counter intuitive.

In the right hand window generally if you scroll in the pane the list of items moves up and down as expected. E.g. Layer List and Block List.

However in Property Editor there are drop down list boxes and scrolling in the Property Editor pane dangerously scrolls elements within any drop down list that the mouse pointer happens to alight upon. This can lead to inadvertently changing properties.

I propose that a drop down list should not scroll until the list is opened. Scrolling in the Property Editor pane should scroll the Property Editor contents.

How do you scroll up and down (scroll bar, mouse wheel, track pad, arrow keys, ...)?

I use the centre mouse wheel for speed. The drop down menus in the Property Editor grab focus for the scroll before being selected and before being opened.

I have tried the up/down arrows and they scroll ok and as expected.
Using the side bar to drag is also possible and consistent.

Both alternatives are slower in use for me.

I have not tried (don't have) a track pad.


Available keyboard shortcuts
