Hi Team,

I am familiar with changing Tabs by simply hovering and spinning the Scrollwheel. This may be useful for some people. The way you hooked this up, however, leads to highly irritating context changes.

 

Do the following:

  • Open a few Content Tabs. Use visually similar items everywhere (here fashion images)
  • Position your mouse cursor towards the top of one content tab and browse
  • Move your mouse cursor up slightly and keep scrolling
  • Your're now scrolling Content Tabs and have likely landed somewhere entirely different


One can consider a few things given: When browsing content one will not always know where exactly the mouse cursor is, your mind is busy with other things. Folders of professional users will very often show similar content. Swapping tabs is very subtle – you will likely not even spot it in the attached gif. 

Please team, turn this switch Tabs by only hovering off by default! There are good reasons why changing tabs in web-browsers doesn't work like that. If you want to keep this functionality, you could map it to some rather obscure key-combination by default e.g. Ctrl+Shift / Alt +Scrollwheel.

Those who really want the current behaviour could remove the Hotkeys.

Do you spot the Tab-Change?Do you spot the Tab-Change?

Yes the middle mouse scroll can avoid switching to next or previous tabs
but why would you scroll by pointing your cursor on top of the tab and not in the big space available within the panel

Honestly, I don't want to discuss non-ideal cursor placement or other user-errors.

User errors happen. Good UX does not punish you for accidental clicks and scrolling in unexpected areas. And it avoids all unexpected context changes, which may leave you disoriented. 


Scrolling tabs is a highly unconventional gimmick in a program that expects a lot of input via vertical scrolling. Also, Bridge gives you plenty of options to show your most important Subwindows without having to switch tabs.

Has this been resolved? It's incredibly annoying, especially since if a scroll is initiated in the main window, it will continue in tabs if the mouse is accidentally moved over the tabs area. A toggle off button or checkbox would be nice.
