Reply to: Vertical scrolling issue in XMetal Author 4.6

XMetaL 4.6.0 is pretty old (2004-ish) so it isn't going to be easy to get to the bottom of this issue. The software is at version 10 now.

If repairing or reinstalling does not correct the problem then something external must be triggering it (Windows or the mouse driver are the most likely things) unless the repair or reinstall is also failing. I really can't say what might be causing this. It sounds like a minor issue to me though, so perhaps you can live with it?

Bug reports going back to 1997 don't turn up anything similar, so I don't think this part of the code has been altered (possibly ever). In theory, a new Microsoft compiler could affect this, and we upgrade that compiler on a fairly regular basis when Microsoft issues updates, so upgrading to the current release (XMetaL Author Essential 10) might help. But since the scrollbars in XMetaL Author are standard Windows scrollbars that have always used standard Windows APIs I really can't see that it would make any difference.
