Feature Request: scrolling works even when panel is not in focus

Post by hlff » Sat Dec 17, 2016 10:43 pm

Currently, scrolling (with mouse wheel, for example) only works for the panel that is highlighted / in focus.

I would like to be able to move the cursor over various parts of the MainType interface and scroll whatever panel the cursor is hovering over, without having to first click to focus the panel.

This will work if the panels that you wish to scroll are floating.

Thanks, Bhikkhu!

I would prefer the scrolling to work even when panels are docked.

Very good suggestion... I'm new to "MainType" and this issue was one of the first I noticed. I would also like be able to scroll the different windows just by having the cursor over it. Because now you must highlight by clicking the window and it means that you can hit a object that wasn't ment and if you having the main work in another window you must click that again after...

So, very good suggestion
