You can still use the scroll bar same as in Autocad for zooming in and out but as you said you have hard time controlling the mouse wheel then use shortcut keys. ZZ for window zoom and ZX for zoom extent. These shortcuts are real timesaver for me much more than the mouse wheel function.

This is a mouse driver setting. You are either using an incorrect driver or have to add revit to the mouse wheel override list in your mouse settings. HTH.

i have a similar problem:

my mouse used to scroll in and out using the wheel without problems,

but now, while working on a site plan, it only zooms in a certain amount

and won't go further, starting to scroll instead. ZR doesn't get me further 

zoomed in either. all this while having a 10m exterior wall on screen - i'm not

trying to zoom in to 0,001 mm or anything.

 

any sugggestions?

If there is a problem is in Windows and nt in Revit, because you don't have the choise in Revit to change the parameters for the Mouse, so, check in Control Panel - Windows - Mouse, if you see any change in the configuration of the mouse....

found the problem:

for some bizarre reason revit won't zoom in further after a

certain level when the crop view option is turned off.

turning crop view on again resolves the issue.

Had a related problem.

My wireless mouse at home had some residual program or features attached to it.  I had a choice to load or activate those features. The mouse worked fine when I first plugged it in almost a year, then I think I actually asked it to load the additional features and they totally screwed up my wheel button.  If I recall there was actually a separate desktop icon for the residual "progam"

After the install, my wheel wouldn't zoom in or out and I think I was also unable to pan with the wheel.  Real frustrating. 

Anyway after about three months it dawned on me that there was a connection to the additional features and my mouse problems.  I uninstalled the residual program and the mouse worked just fine.  Took me about 3 months to figure that out.  I'll check the model of the mouse but, I'm pretty sure it's a logitech. If I get a response back I'll look a little further into model numbers and such.

I dont know if this is the same issue you were having, but I had a problem where if I opened revit and tried zoom on anything with the scroll wheel, it would go very very slow and take many rotations to zoom. This thread gave me some ideas and I realized that if I open revit and then un-plug and then replug my mouse, the zoom works fine. Im sure theres some easier way to fix it, but it works for me!

check in Control Panel - Windows - Mouse

To further clarify, if you set the scroll button to "Auto Scroll" it should fix the zooming problem with the scroll button
