I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X201s laptop. I'm using the laptop's TrackPoint (the red pointing stick which functions as a mouse) in order to scroll. Scrolling using the TrackPoint usually works for me, with one exception: The NetBeans IDE. NetBeans is the only application in which I can't scroll using the TrackPoint. Scrolling in NetBeans does work when using a mouse.

How can I make scrolling in NetBeans work when using the TrackPoint?

More Info:

  • My OS is Windows 7 Professional.
  • I'm using NetBeans 7.0.1.

I found this thread on the Netbeans forums which seems to indicate it that manually adding an exception to the Synaptics app may solve it (and at least one other person who thinks it might be a Java problem as well). Here's a good version of what appears to be the same directions for adding the exception. (You don't mention what OS you're using so I assume it's the out-of-the-box Windows).

If nothing else, it's certainly a known problem.
