Default Smooth horizontal scrolling

Hi Cockos,

The more I use REAPER, the more I *love* it!

Here's a feature request, and I can understand if it's not easy to do...

I've got Shift-Scrollwheel set up to scroll horizontally in the Arrange window. This works well, except that each scrollwheel increment results in a single redraw with the scroll having taken place. This is OK when you're zoomed out on a project, but when you're looking at, say, a series of voiceover clips, it's really not visually obvious if I just scrolled left or right!

Is there any way to implement horizontal scroll events as a short glide? For example, if you use the scrollwheel to scroll vertically in Chrome or Firefox, you'll see that the content *moves* to the new position, rather than just being redrawn in the new position.

Is that something that could be brought to REAPER?

Thanks!
Dan

If it is implemented please make it an option. For me, most kinds of interface animation (including the smooth scrolling in browsers) only get in the way.

Agreed, I'd only be interested in this if it remained really snappy. I can't stand UI animation that slows down your workflow.

+1 And if we could get smooth animations and eye candy on everything that would be awesome

Have you disabled the throttling options in the Advanced UI settings (preferences)? That makes scrolling way smoother. Still I agree that when scrolling very slowly/short distances Reaper is still way more jerky then most other modern apps. I hope Cockos will eventually allow super-smooth pixel-by-pixel scroll like one expects nowadays.

So big +1 from me.
