LionScrollbars0.5.4

07 February 2012

Adjust scrollbar behavior in specific applications.

Overview

LionScrollbars is a small utility that puts control of OS X 10.7's scrollbars back in your hands.

System Preferences in Lion only allows for configuring scrollbars globally. But one setting that applies to all applications does not reflect that for some tasks seeing/not seeing a scrollbar can be crucial (such as always showing a scrollbar for programs where you edit text/code vs. hiding it for Web surfing). For those times when you wish you could change the system default for certain applications, now you can! LionScrollbars allows you to configure scrollbar settings on a per-application basis, so you never need to be frustrated by this again.

What's new in LionScrollbars

Version 0.5.4:
  • Added link to online help wiki.
  • Added appearance tab for installing SIMBL/configuring *experimental* SIMBL plugin for customizing scroller appearance for some apps.
  • Added filter textfield for quickly finding the app whose settings you want to change.
  • Added prompt for optionally restarting target app from within LionScrollbars.

Works perfectly! Allowed me to hide the blasted scrollbars in Terminal on 10.8.2. Now it looks uber badass when running in fullscreen mode. :D

I would also like some way to widen the scrollbars. I have Parkinson's and with the tremor I have in my mousing hand, it can be really tough to hit the narrow little space. Thanks!

WOW...Thanks!!! Can't wait to play around with this. TWO questions, though. (1) ANY chance of getting the scroll arrows worked into this as well??? (2) A quick Google search on SIMBL seems to indicate that SIMBL is not working on Lion. Any chance to another way to access the other screen??? EITHER way, GREAT app!!!

Nice idea. Any chance of an option to restore the wider scrollbars of Snow Leopard and earlier? I hate these narrow scrollbars and I have lots of desktop space.

Per Application setting is a brilliant idea! I have a feature request. Could Mr. Kaplan create a per application reverse scroll option? I have bitten the bullet and adjusted myself to the natural scrolling in Lion. I have converted my working PC into natural scrolling as well. However, it scrolls old-style while I connect it from Remote Desktop Client from my Lion machine! I need a per-application setting for it to scroll "naturally" thru RDC.

Great idea, but the name of the app is misspelled as "LionScollbars" (missing letter r in Scroll). Great idea and would love to see this as a preference pane.
