Sublime Text 3 scrolls too fast on Windows. Even after adjusting settings to a scroll_speed of 0.1 it makes no difference. Please help
this is with a mouse scroll wheel?
with a touchpad - double-finger scrolling
I came here for this exact issue. I have a Lenovo Ideapad 320. Every “scroll” moves the scroller by 4 lines, whether my “scroll_speed” is set to 2.0, 1.0, or 0.1. If I lower my system scroll speed config using my built-in driver (Elan Smart-Pad), it works, but then my scroll speed in other apps becomes unbearably slow.
I have the same issue on a Lenovo Yoga 710. Maybe it only affects Lenovo computers? It doesn’t show up on any other computer I’ve used (mostly HP), and it doesn’t happen when I’m using a mouse with a scroll wheel.
Typically the scroll setting is controlled by Windows - however some devices do overwrite the setting and use their own method… Touch devices may do this on older versions of Windows - however Windows 10 is very touch friendly… I don’t know what you’re using so I’ll assume Win10… If you’re using another, specify here please!
Try editing the setting in Settings > Devices > Mouse > Choose how may lines to scroll each time…
Choose the appropriate device from the list and alter the scrolling method… I’m on a 4k monitor and typically set my scrolling speed anywhere from 8 to 25 - on 1080p I used 3… I only use as low as 8 because some applications have scroll-smoothing which causes issues, or they scroll way too much as they automatically adjust scrolling when most apps don’t…
Has this question been answered? I’ve been looking all over, and I haven’t found a solution that helped. If anyone knows, I’ll appreciate it greatly. Thanks.
Hi there, I’ve had the exact same problem until found this post on reddit. It has fixed my problem. I have Lenovo Ideapad with ELAN touchpad driver (Windows 10).
In case above reddit link is unavailable, here’s the solution:
- Open regedit.exe using run
- Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> SOFTWARE -> Elantech -> Smartpad
- Change ScrollControl_Mode from 0 to 1
- Open the elan software and click apply just to make sure the settings get applied
This is a fix for ELAN software users, for others idk, try to replicate similar steps for your software. Hope it helps you.
Touchpad scrolling fast
This worked for me as well. Thank you so much.
I also have a Lenovo laptop that had the same issue, this preinstalled SmartTouchpad must be the issue. Thanks for the thread, it worked.
