I am new to Revit and have tried to figure out how to create a shortcut to scroll with the mouse wheel instead of zoom. 

For example, my mouse wheel is currently set up to zoom.  In Adobe programs, if you hold the control key and use the mouse wheel, it will allow you to scroll up and down (instead of zoom).  If you hold control & shift, it will allow you to scroll left and right. 

Is there an easy fix for this?  I have tried looking in the keyboard shortcuts but could not find the option.

Thanks - DH

This is set in your mouse driver - not Revit.

If you simply push down on the mouse wheel you can scroll in whatever direction you want.

I have tried the mouse driver options... I have the mouse wheel set to scroll.  It scrolls in all of my programs with the exception of Revit 2013. 

I was able to get a button command in the mouse properties menu to autoscroll and universal scroll.  When used in Revit, the autoscroll worked (but was way too sensitive - and adjusting the sensitivy did not change anything in Revit) and the universal scroll did not work.  The universal scroll would move the location of the scroll box (the 2 boxes you can click on to move a page up/down and left/right), but the view would not change. 

I have found there seems to be defaults associated with different programs (Microsoft Office, Adobe, Internet Explorer, etc).  There are options in my mouse properties to edit specific programs; which I tried to set up in Revit and that also did not work.

Maybe I need a new mouse with different property options.  I have a Logitech Anywhere MX.

According to a post elsewhere:

"....Method is different for the various mice, but several have little troubleshooting routines that are found in Mouse Properties via control panel. The Microsoft mice have a wheel "tab" that offers an "advanced" button where you include Revit.exe in a list of apps to let control the wheel function instead of Windows imposing it's settings on the mouse....."
