    Hey all

    I just got Lion on my Macbook Pro today, and so far i really like it. It took a little bit of time to get used to the reversed scrolling, but i am starting to kind off like it. I do have 2 issues concerning the reversed scrolling.

    1: I am using a mouse with a scroll wheel, is there any way to make it "non reversed" while still keeping the touchpad reversed? It feels awkward scrolling in the wrong direction.

    2: Is there any way to make movie programs like VLC and Quicktime player use the normal scrolling method? It's rather strange to scroll down, when i want the music to be louder.

    I may just have to get used to those things, but i figured i might as well ask if there are any solutions.

    Thanks in advance :)

    The mouse question has been asked many times before, it may do you some help to search prior to posting :). To answer your question, no, you can't have the natural scrolling on one or the other. It's both or none; if you disable it on the mouse it automatically gets disabled on the trackpad.

    And no, you can't select specific apps to use the unnatural scrolling.
