Please also check out my other apps. Scroll Reverser is completely free of charge.
However, if you wish to make a voluntary donation you can do so below. If you have an older Mac without a multi-touch trackpad late and earlier then Scroll Reverser will see your trackpad as a mouse.
I have been using the iPad for a year so I found that with a Magic Mouse the default Lion setting easier to get used to. But since more content in a scrollable view means moving the scrollbar moves the content more, this inverse scrolling has a highly variable speed translation quite the opposite to iOS devices where the speed translation was always unity. Oh, I didn't know. My Trackpad panel does not say either of those things. What's New: Please also check out my other apps.
This also affects some Logitech external trackpads. I know of no fix.
Can you make it reverse 3- and 4-finger swipes too? No, this is not possible. However, swipe direction respects the "Scroll Direction: Natural" setting in System Preferences. Set that to your liking, then use Scroll Reverser to adjust scrolling with respect to that base setting. I am controlling a machine via remote desktop, and Scroll Reverser is running on both the local and remote machine.
Anything I can do to make it work nicely? Run this command at terminal on the remote machine: Can you make it reverse scrolling on volume sliders? Release Notes v1.
As part of investigating Issue Scroll reverser preferences randomly change. Translation updates, including a new Norwegian translation thanks, Patrick. Presence of Scroll Reverser triggering additional security dialogs for example, in Keychain permissions dialogs ; "Shake to locate cursor" not working with Trackpad while Scroll Reverser is running; Notification center getting stuck half-open while Scroll Reverser is running. Added Simplified Chinese zh-CN translation.
Thanks, Ruocheng Wang. Added Dutch translation. Thanks, Erik. A small correction to the Polish translation. This is because of the ongoing problem where macOS sometimes stops sending gesture events to Scroll Reverser after awaking from sleep, preventing it from telling the difference between trackpad and mouse. Hopefully, this will help.
Added Hungarian and Polish translations. Fixed a bug where, on unchecking "Show in menu bar", the "Icon Hidden" message would appear multiple times.
OK I understand the logic behind Apple's decision to "reverse" the scrolling direction in Mountain Lion. What I don't understand is why I now. Yes you can, with Scroll Reverser. It's a free app that sits in your menu bar (you can hide it if you want). It works all the way back to OS X Tiger.
New algorithm to hopefully distinguish more accurately between trackpad and mouse. Added a debug console to help with fault-finding. Added Romanian translation.
Thanks, Gabriel. Important fixes for compatibility with the upcoming Yosemite update Adds AppleScript support for turning Scroll Reverser on and off. This is exactly the opposite of how it's worked since the mouse scroll wheel debuted over 15 years ago.
We can debate whether or not this is a good change—and I'll soon be adding my own two cents on the topic—but it's the default behavior in Lion. And while Apple has provided a simple setting in System Preferences to revert scrolling back to the traditional behavior, it's safe to say that Apple sees Lion's approach as the future.
So there's an argument to be made that we should start embracing it. When the inevitable touchscreen Macs come along, it will certainly make a lot more sense. But you don't have to wait for Lion's debut to start getting used to "reverse" scrolling. Thanks to a new utility, you can get yourself ready for Lion scrolling while you're getting your Mac ready for Lion.
Scroll Reverser is a simple utility that, when running, places a new menu in your menu bar that lets you choose your scroll behavior. Choose Reverse Scrolling, and your Snow Leopard will act like a Lion—at least as far as scroll direction goes.
