I want mouse wheel to work on sliders

I just converted from Windows 7 to OSX Mavericks, and i have seen the light. The Mac is fantastic to do work on, but as a photographer there is a problem; The mousewheel doesnt work on ajustment sliders in Lightroom, and that makes me feel kinda crippled. It was such a nice feature in the Windows version, and it was an important part of my workflow.


Adobe should implement that feature in Lightroom 5.4, or ASAP!


Best regards

    You can hold the mouse over the numbers to the right of the sliders.  The cursor changes to a hand with left/right arrows.  You can then left click and hold and move the mouse left and right to change the sliders at least on OSX previous to Mavericks.

    Don['t hold your breath. Evidently this won't work on a Mac.


    If it's that important to you, go back to a Windows machine. The scrubby slider works just as efficient as the mouse wheel.


    Sometimes I will use the scrubby slider when I want finer control than the mouse wheel.


    It is all a matter of training yourself to use the new OS.




    PS I'm on a Win7 machine.
