Reverse zoom direction of scroll wheel?

Newbie

Reverse zoom direction of scroll wheel?

Anyone know if it's possible to reverse the zoom direction when using the scroll wheel?

In Pro/E rolling the wheel towards you zooms in whereas in every other application I use it zooms out.

I understand PTC's thinking in that by rolling the wheel you're manipulating the object however the de facto standard of every other app assumes you're manipulating the eye point.

Thanks,

Wow...five years and no response.

FWIW, I second Mike's request (new user here).  Inventor allows you to SELECT which way you want to zoom...just sayin'

Thank you for the information.

The AHK looks like the most sensible solution, but my company prohibits me from downloading and installing the AHK code.  The others either look too kludgy, and/or imply that they, too, need me to install something.

I just need a simple switch I can set in the CREO setup!

I take it that PTC doesn’t frequent the communities here, and/or they just don’t care about this feature (or lack thereof)?

In Creo 3.0 there is a config.pro option

USE_INVERTED_MOUSEWHEEL_ZOOM yes
