Description MarjaE 2016-01-23 19:17:36 UTC
I had some trouble debuggging a scrolling issue.

Preferences > View > Mddle Mouse Button > Automatic Scrolling was interfering with another scrolling tool using the same button. Changing this to > No Function didn't seem to help.

I had to change it to > No Function, quit, and restart before I realized that was the fix.

I think, if these immediately took effect, then this would make it easier for users to diagnose and fix these issues.

I don't know whether this is practical though.

Alternatively, the preferences could note that changes will take place after restart.

Surely a most welcome change.

Maybe as the dialog has OpenGL asking to restart now or later and icons being applied directly. No idea how easy the fix is in any of the two options.
