This is probably out of the realm of Airtable, but I have scroll wheel settings to where I like them for all other apps. But for some reason, each “click” of the mouse wheel is effectively the same as hitting the Page Up or Page Down key on my keyboard. I think it’s because the rows on my base have a lot of paragraph text fields which make them quite tall. Is it possible to adjust that so that it only moves by a set number of pixels rather than (I’m assuming) a set number of rows?

The steps to adjust mouse wheel scroll sensitivity varies depending on the operating system you are using:


  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Open "Mouse" settings
  3. Look for "Wheel" tab and adjust the scrolling speed using the slider.


  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Open "Mouse" or "Trackpad" settings
  3. Look for "Scrolling speed" and adjust the scrolling speed using the slider.

In some mouse models, you can also adjust the scrolling sensitivity through software provided by the manufacturer.

You're right, adjusting mouse wheel sensitivity depends on your OS. For Windows, navigate to Control Panel > Mouse > Wheel tab. On MacOS, go to System Preferences > Mouse/Trackpad > Scrolling speed. Some mouse software may offer settings too. Adjust to your liking!
