[GNC] V#3 Windows scroll bars

ChrisGood
Hi,

 

Users of Gnucash 3 may have noticed that the scrollbars are used differently
in GnuCash version 3 to version 2.

If you now click above (or below) the current position bar in the

scrollbar, it takes you to the place in the window which is proportional to
where in the scroll bar you click, rather

than up (or down) 1 screen full.

 

This is due to the change from gtk2 to gtk3.

There is a gtk3 setting which can be changed to revert back to the old
behaviour but this is currently not working for GnuCash.

I have raised bug https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=796421 - GTK3
settings.ini not being used

so that hopefully this can be fixed.

 

In the meantime. you can revert back to the old behaviour by using
shift-left-click or middle-button-click instead of just left click.

I have tested this in Windows 10. This should also work in Linux. Not sure
about Mac sorry.

 

Regards, Chris Good

I've found that the reason my configuration change in settings.ini was not
working, was because I used an incorrect character (semi-colon) to mark the
first line as a comment instead of #.
When I changed C:\Users\{UserName}\AppData\Local\gtk-3.0\settings.ini to:

# Use Windows style scrollbars
[Settings]
gtk-primary-button-warps-slider=false

it works fine.

In Linux, this file is usually
/home/{UserName}/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini.
In Mac, it should be /Users/{UserName}/Library/Application
Support/GnuCash/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

Thanks, Chris. I've added this info to the GTK3 page
(https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/GTK3).
