    What are you using? Trackpad, Magic Mouse or wheeled mouse?

    BetterTouchTool lets you invers the scrolling too, been using that for a while. (although it doesn't work in things that aren't that Cocoa based, like everything Adobe I've tried.)

    It's definitely odd at first. Scrolling used to be like moving the scroll bar around but now it's like moving the content. They both work as a concept but I think the latter stands up better with touch based mice while the wheel works with scroll bars. That's why I can go back to a "normal" mouse just fine.

    I also think they need to start calling it "sliding" or something else as opposed to "scrolling." Because it's not just the concept of what you're moving that's changed. Sliding two fingers up on an item in the dock brings up stuff and you go back in Safari by sliding the page off to the side. They're changing it more then just flipping it around.

    I'm using the trackpad on my MBP. I didn't think to see if BetterTouchTool offered this, I've heard that it is great, but never tried it. Off to download now, thanks:D.

    I'm liking BTT, but I have one thing that bugs me about the reverse scrolling. When I want to scroll a web page it is reversed, but in a menu(not sure if thats the right term) it is not reversed. For example, the Forum Jump at the bottom of this page, when you are in the menu to select the forum, the scroll is not reversed. Does anyone know where to change this to reverse? Thanks

    So that's why scrolling felt off in those kinds of menus. Yea sorry, BTT does the reverse scrolling some way that obviously misses quite a few things.

    So, does Scroll Reverser work with those little menus? Or better yet, in anything Adobe?
