Description Michael Stahl (CIB) 2018-05-02 12:27:01 UTC
Description:
GTK3 supports "Smooth scrolling" by clicking on the scrollbar slider and holding the mouse button until it becomes "thin", which enables a mode that allows very precise scrolling.

https://blog.gtk.org/2017/10/11/a-scrolling-primer/

VCL scrollbars don't support this currently, and they also don't display the "scroll up" / "scroll down" buttons with GTK3 so there is no way to do precise scrolling.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. left click on scrollbar slider
2. hold button for some seconds


Actual Results:  
3. notice no change in scrollbar behaviour

Expected Results:
3. change in scrollbar behaviour to precise scrolling


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No
