I have Lenovo ThinkPad T470p laptop with
- ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard with TrackPoint and
- ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser Mouse and
- Windows 10 Pro
I've encountered with the following issues:
It appears that when I'm trying to scroll anything in MS Visual Studio 2017 - scrolling with Middle Button and TrackPoint (pointing stick) stops working at all.
And more over it does not work in all other apps until I do relogon or reboot .
Also I see the same behavior for ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser Mouse - scroll/wheel does not work.
So it seems VS somehow breaks scrolling. And probably any app can break it.
Any ideas how to solve this issues?
My hardware configuration :
- ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard with TrackPoint
- ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser Mouse
Driver: Lenovo Mouse Suite 6.86
- Windows 10 Pro
Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz
- Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2017
Microsoft .NET Framework

I created an account just to say that I also have this issue. I've put way too much time trying to figure out a work around rather than posting as you did, so thank you. With that said, maybe some of the things I've figured out might help your daily workflow a bit...at least until we get an answer on this.
Hope that at least helps a little until we get an answer on this issue.

Out of curiosity, does the scrolling work as expected with the keyboard on the ThinkPad? As a die-hard TrackPoint zealot, I can understand how that would become VERY frustrating.
Based on the drivers for these devices, my expectation would be that it does NOT work with the native keyboard.

I have a bit of a bandaid for this issue. Since Lenovo seems to be insistent on not fixing this issue (despite updating their driver in July), I wrote a quick PowerShell script to re-enable the process that allows for scrolling if it gets disabled from VS.

I have also this problem, it would be very nice, if you can solve it fast, because I buying this keyboard also for programming and the fast scrolling while programming.
Thank you a lot!!
