Seems that both up and down scrolls on my mouse scroll down the list. Keybindings show undefined on the server selection screen, so I'm guessing that is causing the game to not read my wheel correctly. Wouldn't think that the definitions mattered on the server select, but perhaps it does.

Guess I'll make a generic "server select" binding and see ....

[Edit] Nope, no diff, still can only scroll down the list, not up. Just something I'll live with until there are only 5 I guess

PSA for those using a Windows laptop with a touchpad but no scroll wheel. Worked for me just now.
1. Click the Windows icon. This will bring up the Start menu.
2. Enter 'Mouse' in the search field and press enter. This will bring up the 'Mouse Properties' window or similar.
3. Click 'Device Settings'.
4. Locate 'One-Finger Scrolling'.
5. Ensure that vertical scrolling is enabled.
6. Run your finger up and down the right edge of your touchpad to scroll up and down through the server list.

With only scroll wheel being usable this is a major issue for:
-Anyone with a broken scroll wheel
-Anyone using a laptop (since many trackpads scroll differently
-Anyone using a trackball, since those often don't have a scrollwheel
-Anyone who tends to remote into their computer when at work for guild management/gtn/ or whatever
Trackballs usually have the ability to scroll by holding down one or more of the buttons. Sometimes it requires a keyboard key. But anyone with a trackball should know how to do this.

Maybe "anyone" does, but this trackball user doesn't. If you know the command it would be appreciated if you'd post or link. update For those with a logitech t-ball, download SetPoint scrolling function works on all other programs/webpages etc. BUT NOT swtor server list. Still looking.
