Default Horizontal scroll in IDE ??

When the text extends out of view how do you scroll the editor over?

is it possible to assign to shift-mousewheel?

How do you guys manage it?

Hi Jon,

looks like it's currently not possible to scroll horizontally via mouse/trackpad in the built-in IDE.

In general, there are some options by using key shortcuts:
  • Using/holding the arrow keys to scroll through the text line
  • Using the [End] key (Windows) or [fn] + right arrow (macOS) to jump to the end of a line in the IDE
  • Using CMD + right arrow (macOS) jumps to the end of the next word. Or in some cases/applications, to the end of the line.

Zooming out via Ctrl + mousewheel (Windows) or CMD + mousewheel (macOS) can also be helpful to a certain degree.


Side note: personally, I'm mainly using an external editor for code/script related things (in my case: Visual Studio Code where horizontal scrolling is possible via trackpad or SHIFT + mousewheel).

Some horizontal Mousewheels allow it, but it seems like not all are accepted.
I have the trackpoint on my Thinkpad, which does horizontal mousewheel and depending on the installed driver(they made numerous ones for whatever reason) it works or not.
