Mouse Wheel Control in 2.1.30 - Frequency Tuning as in PowerSDR

edited April 2020 in New Ideas
With the new version 2.1.30 I would like to take up an old idea, which was last seen here 2 years ago: I like the way mouse wheel tuning is possible with PowerSDR, where you just hover the mouse over the frequency numbers, scroll with the wheel and change fequency this way. 

2.1.30 has partly taken up that idea for SmartSDR and made mouse wheel tuning possible for all of the slider settings on the right side of the screen, like RF power, speaker...

Why not make mouse wheel tuning optional? It could even be integrated in the right click menu, which also has the excellent tune guides.

P.S. I know of course that mouse wheel tuning is possible with SmartSDR, taking the step information, but just not for the individual frequency numbers.

    Individual Frequency numbers can't be tuned by the mouse wheel in SmartSDR, in PowerSDR they can.

    I know there is always something, that's a feature I never missed. I can find the frequency fine without this.

    I have seen several posts about the "idea" of changing the tune steps while tuning with the mouse wheel just hovering the mouse on the relevant digit in the active slice frequency readout. After 3 years it is maybe time to renew the request for this feature. Thanks.
