Now that I have installed Lion, I have to scroll up on my mouse to go down. Weird. How do I reverse it?

Thanks

Go into Preferences/track pad/scroll and zoom/ then either check or uncheck scroll direction natural. It it's checked uncheck it and if it is not checked check it.

That should do it.

Is there a way to enable natural scrolling on the trackpad, but disable it for mice? I think that natural scrolling does make sense on a trackpad, but with a mouse it doesn't feel natural at all!

The first thing I did when I noticed this was went into the preferences for mouse to see what it was. I would assume it would be that obvious to everyone but there have been so many of this question posted its amazing.

The wording of the settings implies that you should be able to, but the system doesn't allow it. I'm thinking this is a bug of sorts that will be fixed, but I have no idea. Right now, you can't, even though it's possible to have inverse scrolling checked on under the Trackpad pane and off under the Mouse pane.

I was looking under my logitech setup. Would have never imagined to look under track pad since I was not using one. Make sense? Therefore, it is not under preference for the mouse so you must have looked elsewhere.

It was under my mouse prefs, but I don't have a 3rd party mouse...so they might be why.

That explains why there have been so many of this question tho!

No, you just didn't see it.

@gentlefury: I have a Logitech mouse as well. It has nothing to do with whether or not you have a third-party mouse. If anything, Apple's wording of the option is obscure. They should have just called it "Inverted scrolling" instead of the long sentence they used.

Nope. Your spot on after reading the next post. I guess there is a lot of blind people.

I got my lazy self out of bed just to go look because I swear I looked. Your spot on too. Thanks for all the help. I would be lost without these forums.

Unfortunately this doesn't work when you have both. You can check "Natural scrolling" in trackpad and do whatever you want to the checkbox in mouse settings and the Logitech mouse ignores that. It could be because I have the Logitech Control Center installed, has anyone tried it with just the default mouse driver?

I know this is an old post, but my software engineering firm used this as a first project because I was also annoyed by this setting.
The final product is called Squirrelly because I felt the natural scroll direction that Apple used felt a little "squirrelly". Our app is a light weight, efficient status bar app that works great. You can download it quickly and easily from our website at http://www.handceng.com/squirrelly/ for $1.29 USD.
