How to adjust mouse wheel intensity

The scroll setting on the mouse is extremely weak. Each tick on the wheel scrolls my artboard only a single pixel, making scrolling with the mouse totally inefficient if I'm zoomed into my artboard. I'm using Illustrator CS6

Is there any way to correct this?

Ive never seen a scroll setting for Illustrator alone, could be a bug with the latest version.

Try holding down shift when scrolling

I wish I could edit my posts here! Sorry to clog this up, but my vertical scrolling is actually normal. It was just a horizontal scroll problem that command-scrolling fixed.

This is not adjusted in Illustrator but in your OS.

No, there must be some other problem causing this. Scrolling in my web browser, InDesign, and other apps all work as intended. It's only in Illustrator that panning and scrolling speed is noticeably slower. The speed of zooming in Illustrator also works correctly as expected.

Awesome. Yep, holding shift makes Illustrator scroll at the normal speed.

I assume you're on Windows. Shift scrolling on Mac is panning, however, command scrolling on my Mac slowed it down to a normal rate (everything else scrolls fine, but Illustrator is wildly fast).

...scratch that. Command scrolling is a slower pan, but I'm still going crazy with vertical scrolling.
