Q - question

Problems with AutoCAD zooming using wheel mouse.

A - answer Be sure you have the 'Use Office Compatibility' option (or similar 'plain' option - sometimes called 'Middle button' or 'Autoscroll') selected in your mouse control software. Otherwise the mouse driver is trying to simulate Intellizoom by its own tools which conflicts with AutoCAD. The MBUTTONPAN AutoCAD variable should be on.

When using the latest versions of MS driver, add ACAD.EXE (or ACLT.EXE/ACADLT.EXE) to the list of applications in:
Control Panel/Mouse/Wheel Tab/Advanced button
