On-Screen Takeoff is designed to scroll left and right when you press the <Shift> key, on the keyboard, while using the wheel on the mouse.

On occasion a client may report that when they try the left/right scroll, their On-Screen Takeoff is scrolling diagonally.

This is caused by conflicting mouse drivers. Although On Center does support hardware, we can offer the following as a solution.


To resolve this issue, the client (or their IT person):

  • Browse to Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel
  • Locate the different mouse drivers (example Microsoft IntelliMouse version 6.1.x or 6.2.x) and uninstall all of them
  • Reboot PC
  • Once the drivers are uninstalled, they will need to install the latest drivers provided with their mouse (this usually requires another reboot)

Once this is done, the software should scroll properly
