I'm using Ubuntu 17.10 on a Thinkpad T470s (don't think this is relevant) and when I'm scrolling horizontally in Chromium (version 63) and the cursor is in an input box it types
k characters (
j for left and
k for right).
Some additional information:
- It works in the address bar and settings window so it can't be any extensions
- I'm using wayland on Gnome
- The behavior is exactly the same with touchpad and mouse
- In the stackoverflow editor box (which I'm typing this very question in) scrolling left does the usual
jtyping thing but scrolling right inputs a code block which suppose to have the shortcut
If you want to "experiment" with it and have some edge case ideas let me know and I'll try them.
