I know PgUp and PgDn are used for advancing through the slides in the presenter console, but it would be nice when in the "slides" view of the console to be able to use the mouse wheel to scroll - instead of using the vertical scroll bar.

Thanks for your work on free software!

I second this RFE: it is quite annoying to have to use the scroll bar while the mouse wheel is the usual and most convenient way to scroll.

Maybe it's just a matter of missing mouseListener in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/tree/sdext/source/presenter/PresenterSlideSorter.cxx#n505, as only mousePressed, mouseReleased, mouseEntered and mouseExited are registered.

I had also a look into the code an can confirm, that a mouse wheel event is missing. But currently I didn't find out how to get the event as there seems to be no EventListener available which would provide this event:




Maybe I am missing there something?
