I'm merely suggesting the information is already present in the
WriteLog Manual [Help File] for those that care to look.
For example, the [Elecraft_K3_COMMANDS] section shows how to program
the RIT UP/RIT DOWN commands on two keyboard rig command keys. You
*may* be able to use a keyboard mapping program or your mouse driver
to map your scroll wheel to keyboard keys (scroll wheel generates
keystrokes) if you prefer to use a scroll wheel for that purpose but
information on specific software.
Again, I'm trying to suggest the functionality is already present.
All it takes is a little study and ingenuity - not for Wayne to
code yet another thinly documented option. There are already too
many options that are not well known ...
