Possible to limit Alt scroll wheel to active monitor?

Post by eu2 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 6:20 pm

MInt Cinnamon 3.6.7 64bit.

Hi all,

I am wondering if it is possible to limit the cinnamon alt scroll wheel zoom to just the monitor the cursor is over or just one monitor?

On a dual monitor setup (primary and secondary, not mirror), the zoom wheel function zooms both displays.

A partial solution for my needs is to enable the lens function with scroll at screen edges enabled (my primary monitor is a higher resolution than my secondary monitor and the lens zoom misses the edges of my primary monitor).

Thanks in advance,

Euan.

Still don't get why this is a thing as it's crazy when you have 2 or more monitors and just want to zoom in on one screen.
The other screen you are generality reading text from zooms in as well.
Just bugs me as it defeats the whole purpose of it being an accessibility feature.
