#9967 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make "About Adium" window scrollable

Reported by: David Munch Owned by: nobody
Milestone: Adium 1.4 Component: Adium UI
Version: Severity: minor
Keywords: scroll about window moving text Cc:
Patch Status: Accepted

Description

Currently when you scroll in the "About Adium" window, the text speeds up for just a split second.

I would like to be able to either:

  • Scroll the text so the text moves faster.
  • Hold down the mouse-button in the window so the text moves faster.

On a second notice, proton just told me that the 'split second speed up' is actually just a trick of the eye. But the rest of the ticket still applies.

I don't think this is an appropriate patch to include; it would be confusing since nobody would know to do it anyway.

I broke the autoscrolling out into a subclass of NSTextView that waits for a mouse scroll event. When the user scrolls on the textView the vertical scrollbar is enabled and the autoscroll stops.

Since the option key was a hidden key anyways I reassigned it to toggle autoscroll.
