x1 Carbon 2015 (Gen3) Trackpoing Horizontal Scroll (Excel)

2015-03-04, 14:52 PM

Good Afternoon,

 

I am having an issue with my x1 Carbon 2015 (Gen3).

 

This machine uses a different Synaptic package from the x1 Carbon (Gen1) which I have used previously.

 

The package I am using is as per the Lenovo website - version 18.1.27.14.

 

When using Micorosft Excel 2013 and trying to scroll horizontally using the middle trackpoint button and the trakpoint nipple. The cursor changes and displays a horizontal scrollbar icon but only intermittantly works, mostly just after a reboot and then shortly after it fails although still changes the cursor.

 

Verticle scroll works without issue in all applications.

 

I have tried generic synaptic driver package directly from them to no avail. I have tried the Gen1 driver package to no avail.

 

Does anyone have any ideas, similar experience, workarounds? Or a Gen3 that they can try to recreate the same issue?

 

Thanks

R

So the issue has moved on a litte. I have managed to find the previous drivers 18.1.27.12 but this has not made a difference to the issue either.

 

However.....When it occurs and I am not able to scroll horizontally if I attempt to scroll using the trackpad it will then reactivate the trackpoint horizontal scroll. So better than previously and a workaround I can probably live with until the release of new drivers.

 

As before though, if anyone is able to test the same circumstances as I have it would be interesting as I can't think what else with my setup could be the issue.

 

Thanks

Hey mate,

 

Try this:

 

Control Panel -> Mouse -> ThinkPad (tab) -> Settings -> General (tab) -> switch TrackPoint Middle Button to Traditional

 

This worked for me and I have the same specs as you (x1 carbon 2015 gen 3, excel 2013, windows 8.1)

 

Hope this helps.
