Where are the up/down scroll arrows in Mail?  This Lion transition is turning into a nightmare of inconvenientes!  Who removes up/down scroll arrows? 

iPhone 3GS, iOS 5.1, iMac Intel Core 2 Duo, iCloud

    They're optional. If you have a trackpad/magic mouse/etc. then you can scroll using gestures and the scroll bars appear automatically.


    If you want them there all the time, System Preferences -> General -> Show Scroll Bars -> Always

    That will bring the scroll bars back, but not the arrows. The arrows are gone. The only way to get them back is to return to Snow Leopard.


    If you wish to send feedback to Apple about this, you can do so here:

    Thanks for the link to complain...  eeer, provide feedback!


    I just can't imaginge the logic in completely removing scroll arrows they are part of a the window. I am so angry.  Lion is a total bait/switch disappointment.


    •Can't scroll with precision

    •Can't spotlight in Mail

    •Can't open ANY MS Office files (need to upgrade)

    • ...I am sure there will be more surprises


    When is Mountain Lion releases?  ...it better be FREEEEEE!

    This didn't bug me too much initially since I used the scroll feature of the magic mouse.


    But I have since stopped using the magic mouse because it eats batteries and I am tired of buying new ones and disposing of old ones.


    Without the magic mouse and the scroll arrows, scrolling in large documents is impossible.


    I wish they would bring back the scroll arrows.

    You can always get a wired mouse with a scroll wheel. Your local computer store probably has one for $10 in the bargain bin.
