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 188.8.131.52.
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?

So the issue has moved on a litte. I have managed to find the previous drivers 184.108.40.206 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.

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.
