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!
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.
Yes of cause i can slide the values instead. That i knew already, but thanx for reply. Its still much, much slower, and requires moving the mouse. I have used the mousewheel for so long. Its so fast to just click and scroll. Great when you have several hundred pictures and a deadline breathing down your neck. I really want to se that feature again, and i hope it will be implemented really soon.
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.
Yeah you are probably right. The scrubby slider is fine in many ways, and i just have to adapt to another way of doing things. I wont go back to Windows..
