Horizontal Mouse Scrolling

I use a mouse which has a horizontal scroll wheel. This allows me to quickly traverse the columns of excel documents, webpages, etc.

 

This interaction is not available in Alteryx Designer and when working with wide data previews it would improve my UX drastically.

Agree. Horizontal scroll should be activated.

Hello, I would also like to make an addition to this idea. Previously, I was able to scroll horizontally on the 'canvas' or 'results' using the touchpad in Windows 10, however I am currently unable to do so after Windows 10 version 1809 update. This is not the case with other programs I am using. My computer model is Lenovo ThinkPad 470s and the current Synaptics touchpad driver is 19.3.4.117 with 'precision' touchpad support.

Hi all, @jameswine @ckregor @Hedge29 @ksoykan001 @db-DCA 

 

You can scroll horizontally in most places by holding down shift and scrolling your mouse wheel, this scrolls horizontally when clicked or hovering in the canvas, results or configuration windows which are probably the most common places.

 

You can also do the same on tool categories and tools.
