In the 'old' days there were two types of scrolling buttons or that worked with the mouse wheel and one that you could click and drag for more movement while still controlling it a bit.  I now have Aperture 3.4.5 and don't see [and haven't for a time] the option or opportunity for the click and drag scroll or movement in the List view.  I know I can scroll using the wheel but that really is hard to do with any precision and sore on my hand etc. when I'm dealing with multiples of thousands.  I'd like to be able to click and drag the button or arrow or whatever to pull the contents up or down - not just scroll.


Is that possible or is there a fix?




[I'm using it in the text List view and it's set all the way to the L so type and image are small...want to deal with as many as I can at once]

    Are you referring to this:

    If so this is a system wide change and you can restore it in System Preferences->General


    These are the settings you want to play around with, Show scroll bars

    Try each setting and see which one feels right for you.


    If you refering to something else post back.
