Scroll line by line

I think I’m probably missing something basic here, but I seem to be wasting a lot of time when I need to scroll line by line.
This need arises when for instance I’m working on two files simultaneously and would like finer visual control, and perhaps when comparing two similar versions of a file.
I’m running Komodo Edit, version 8.5.3, build 14067, platform linux-x86_64.
Currently mouse wheel jumps scroll about 4 lines, minimap is good for quick general scrolling only, the grab handle/double arrowed tab which appears on mouseover on the rhs is also erratic, which leaves using the arrow keys which is very tedious!
Can’t find any control for mouse scroll in preferences and there are no settings for the mouse wheel in system settings - maybe that’s the problem?
Any tips?

Komodo does not dictate any scroll settings, this all comes from your system. So you’ll have to modify the number of lines you scroll by from the system level or if you really want to control it differently from Komodo you could write a simple macro that interprets the scroll event.

OK thanks nathanr
Did some more digging on this and seems there’s some discussion around improving mouse scrolling on ubuntu version I’m using.
I did wonder though, given that Komodo uses the mozilla engine, whether there might be something in the settings similar to about:config in firefox that allows mouse wheel scroll control - mousewheel. … .numlinesof etc?
That would be real handy!
Thanks for your work on Komodo Edit - great tool :slight_smile:

As far as I’m aware we have no such setting, nor would the ones from Mozilla transfer over since we are “scrolling” a completely different type of element. If you’d really want to force a scroll setting on Komodo you’d have to write a macro.
