Change direction of zoom using mouse wheel

Asked by Evan on 2010-11-11

Is it possible to change the direction of zoom using the mouse wheel? The way it works now is when I draw my finger across the wheel back towards me, the canvas zooms out and I would like the reverse.

Hello,
I'm afraid this feature hasn't been implemented yet. Feel free to create a new "wishlist" report in the Bugs section if you think it should be added to Inkscape.

Thanks. Not a big deal. I just didn't know if I was not finding it in the help. FWIW, it intuitively makes more sense to me that when you drag your finger back toward your hand that you are moving something closer to yourself, that is, zooming in.
