middle mouse button + drag = scroll as smoothly as you like.

actually, wherever i come across smooth scrolling i tend turn it off, as it simply makes slow to navigate. life's too short for this

Actually no, middle mouse button + drag = drag as smoothly as you like. And then you have to grab the thing again and again to move forward or back. It's a nice trick but will never replace the scroll wheel.

The point is, smoothness it's already there with the click and drag and the scroll bars. It can be smooth so it's just a matter of linking this to the mouse's scroll wheel, how hard can that be? Most softwares and browsers have that.

I’ve never understood why Cubase has been so bad at scrolling and zooming for so long.

also scrolling with touchpad is nightmare in Cubase. its fine in fl, ableton or anywhere else, but in Cubase only stepped mousewheel works fine, two-finger swipe scroll is crazy fast so its close to impossible to navigate this way.

it would be great if I could use 2 finger swipe as pressed middle button on mouse, but afaik theres no option for that

I can't *knuf* believe this hasn't been implemented yet. Cubase is basically unusable with a trackpad. Come on, Steinberg!

+1 times infinity for this feature request! I'm using a Kensington TurboMouse (in Windows), which I love so much. The scroll wheel on it really stinks when trying to scroll vertically or horizontally (pressing Shift). Like others have mentioned, it jumps too far ahead/behind even when trying to be as gentle as possible. Pro Tools used to have (probably still do) the ability to make super-fine fader adjustments in the mixer (and sends) when pressing down the "Option" key I think. They need to put something like that in Cubase where you can hold down a key to slowly scroll (and add the shift key to scroll horizontally). I find it surprising that, in light of Cubase being so awesome in so many ways, the ability to easily scroll and also the size of those tiny little scroll bars hasn't been addressed. Right now my workaround for scrolling is to program a button on the TurboMouse to click and drag and then I can click on the scroll bar and use to ball to scroll. That solution really highlights the fact that the scroll bars are so tiny, though!

Here from an internet search on this issue and I was just curious if this was every resolved in any updates (I'm on 9.5). I'm recently migrated over from Protools and it is one of the first thing I noticed. Kind of annoying when trying to do audio editing. Thanks

This jump scrolling is bizarre and really annoying. The weird thing is I was playing around with quantise and some other things as I thought it might have something to do with that, and then it worked. I was able to smooth scroll using apples magic mouse. but then it reverted back to the jerky movement. And I can't recreate what I did !

I have just tried scrolling in windows explorer - same jumping scrolling, it doesn't bother me
It definitely bothers me as I can't accurately or easily scroll to the track that I want, as it 'overjumps it'

I can't believe this hasn't been fixed yet. I just bought Cubase 10.5 and yet Logic, Pro Tools, Reason, they all have smooth, seamless scrolling like a web browser or text document. Even when using the Cubase scroll bars on the side and bottom of the window, its is smooth and seamless. But as soon as we try to work and scroll with a wheel (or the touch surface of the Magic Mouse), it skip/jumps and I loose focus, concentration and my flow on the task at hand.

This is the reason I still can't use Cubase for my daily work (I write music for Discovery Ch., Nat Geo, various others) and its *quiz* me off now because I have had every version of Cubase since version 4.

I love Cubase and I want to work in it everyday, but its just a flow killer that I cannot waste energy and time on straining my eyes on refocusing on transients or tracks.

I have made a video of a screen recording that I want to send to Steinberg. We'll see if that helps. Anyone have any tips who I can send it to?

Yes to this, fbeauvaisc!!!! It is the biggest reason I cannot use Cubase for my daily work. And it pains me because I love Cubase so much. I know EXACTLY what you are talking about and it seems there are thousands who agree (people to work under stress deadlines and rely on efficient work flow.)

I have made a screen recording to better illustrate the problem and where other DAW's succeed, but I don't know where to send it yet. Obviously these forums aren't the correct place.

I really love the 10.5 update. They seemed to have listen to the pro users. I notice a bunch of small thing not even advertised. Hopefully smooth scrolling is not too far behind. I hope they keep with upgrades that make sens to the pro users and slow down on the flashy new features.

It would be a really neat feature, honestly, the jumpiness gets bothersome really quick, especially if you are accustomed to the smoothness of Windows OS.

I sent them an email about this. Lets hope they take notice. I still cannot use cubase for my daily work until they have solved the scrolling AND zoom (vertically) the mouse surface/ scroll wheel (It currently only works to zoom horizontally (!?!?!))

Smooth scrolling in the project window but mostly in the audio editors would help a lot.

I am using the mouse's wheel but It is very easy to loose track of specific audio transients when scrolling as it uses somewhat large increments. In the piano roll, the pitch of the notes kind of give you additional references but smooth scrolling would help a lot when editing audio.

Thanks,
Apparently Steinberg don't care about this annoying scrolling issue. I'm a sound desinger and I've the same issue with Nuendo 10. Whatever mouse your are using scrolling jumps in big steps instead to be smooth. In this way you get totally lost by scrolling.

Now we are in 2020 and still no improvements.

I suppose they are not able to fix this issue, maybe its due to the code?

No idea, but I strongly hope they will overcome to this bad scrolling behavior.
