Many mice for PCs now include a scroll wheel and left / right scroll capability. See screenshot of my mouse. In Accordance 10 for Windows, several modules support the right / left scroll wheel function. However....
When I push the wheel to the left (for left scroll), the navigation direction is to the right. Likewise, when I push the wheel to the right (for right scroll), the navigation direction is to the left. It's not what I had expected as a user. Is the navigation behavior by design?
To compensate the current mental model of the navigation behavior, think of the basic vector of force, F, as in F = ma. F provides the direction of thrust (as from a thruster engine). So when I want to left / right scroll in Accordance, I think of the direction of thrust and its opposite and equal reaction of force, the navigation direction.
