Horizontal mouse scrolling

This feature is pretty common now on most mice. You can push the scrollwheel right or left. It's also well supported in Linux and Windows.

Any chance we'll see this supported in IntelliJ? Or is there some feature I need to switch on to enable it?

Thanks.

Hello James,

scrollwheel right or left. It's also well supported in Linux and

Horizontal mouse scrolling is not supported in current JDK versions. As far
as I understand JDK 7 will include new APIs for working with multiple mouse
wheels.

Cool. Thanks for the fast response! I'll wait until then.

Although, I wonder if there's a way to bind left/right scrolling to a mouse button. On my logitech, left scroll generates mouse button 7, and right scroll generates mouse button 6.

IIRC, JDK support is not needed to make it working.
