W520 Trackpoint Scrolling Doesn't Work In Lightroom

I am trialing Adobe Lightroom and scrolling does not work with the Trackpoint unless I click on the scroll bars. I haven't had problems in any other apps but have not been able to find a solution for Lightroom. Any ideas?

There's a special rules list for TrackPoint scrolling under "C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\TP4table.dat". Not sure how to define a rule though.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U

Thanks...that looks like the file that needs an entry for lightroom. Still searching for some directions on defing rules.

The same problem exists when using Adobe Bridge.

So, I am not likely to find a solution?

This is what works for Maxthon:

; Maxthon
*,*,maxthon.exe,*,*,Maxthon3Cls_WebViewHost,WheelVkey,0,9

Try this:

*,*,lightroom.exe,*,*,*,WheelVkey,0,9

Thanks for the reply...unfortunately, no luck.

 

Searching doesn't turn up many references to this problem and no solutions at all. I think Lightroom is a heavily used app so maybe this issue is confined to the W520.

Re: W520 Trackpoint Scrolling Doesn't Work In Lightroom

I'd try some of the other possible endings instead of "WheelVkey,0,9". (I assume Lightroom is lightroom.exe)

Standard,1,9
WheelStd,0,9
WheelStd,1,9
SendInput,0,9
WheelP,0,9
TwoParents,0,14
VkKeys,0,5

No idea what they actually mean though.

I guess what I was trying to infer is that I think it is an Adobe issue, rather than a Lenovo or a Microsoft issue.  I have not figured it out completely (despite having the problem for several years, on Adobe CS4 running on a W500, and now CS 5.5 running on a W520), but I think it has to do with the Adobe applications taking direct control of the scrolling function for other purposes, such as changing the image view size (zoom), etc.  That's my guess.

Re: W520 Trackpoint Scrolling Doesn't Work In Lightroom

I'd just try changing the custom TrackPoint scroll rules. twofingerscroll can evidently trigger scrolling on Bridge for me.

Do keep in mind a reboot is necessary to enact any changes.
