    In Flash apps, scroll fields don't respond to my mouse wheel or trackpad scrolls.

    This was a widely discussed issue a few years ago, but I'm not finding any recent chatter. Advice?

    Yeah, I'd prefer everything went HTML too. :apple::D

    Tried running the Beta, and half my apps got stuck at data load. Gross.

    Is there anybody around who CAN wheel scroll in Flash?

    I believe you can do it in Windows as a Key.isDown(). I've only one app in Flash that actually used the scroll wheel. Told the guy I was super impressed, he might have been passing in something through HTML, I'm really not sure.

    Considering how many games use Key.isDown(1) for mouse click that doesn't work in OS X...
