A long time ago I developed a habit of grabbing a scroll bar thumb and pushing the mouse toward the end and beyond without too much care when I simply want to scroll the window all the way to the end.
At one time, as I recall the mouse would remain captive no matter how far off the scroll thumb the pointer actually was. This made this particular "gesture" valid.
Lately I find that pushing the mouse a ways off the end of the scroll bar causes the mouse to "lose its grip" on the scroll thumb, the scrolling operation to be aborted, and the scrolled window to return to its starting point. I've seen some info online that implies the distance is 100 pixels.
When a window has been scrolling in real time, then it "jumps back" to where it started right about at the time I release the mouse too far from the end, I find that very disruptive to my train of thought. I find anything that "automatically cancels" an operation I've initiated annoying; I believe anyone would.
My question is this:
Do you know of a setting that can be changed to increase the distance the window manager allows the cursor to move away from a scroll bar thumb with the left mouse button down before the thumb is automatically released?
A setting to disable the behavior altogether would be fine as well.
Thanks in advance.
