    Hey all,

    Just received my Retina MacBook Pro but have been suffering from this same issue on my Air as well.

    Basically, I use both the trackpad and a wireless mouse.

    Wireless Mouse - Uncheck "Scroll Direction: natural"
    Trackpad - Check "Scroll Direction: Natural"

    In effect, you can't have one setting for the mouse and another for the trackpad (that would make wayyyy too much sense, right Apple?). So I am constantly changing it depending on which tracking solution I use.

    Does anyone else have this issue, and if so, how do you combat it without changing it every time?

    I just leave it at natural. When I use a normal mouse, I've adapted to know which way to scroll. And when I go to a normal mouse on a Windows computer, I still know which way to scroll for that machine.

    Just took some practice of switching back and forth. Now it's just natural even when switching regularly between machines and mice.
