Yes. Those options have absolutely no effect on mouse wheel movement. Optimizing for Gaming causes the mouse cursor to become stuck in the VM guest window.
No matter what it takes 8 "clicks" of the mouse wheel to produce 1 "click" worth of scrolling. This was not the case in the past. It began with VMware Fusion 11.
Does anyone know what to do about this? Scrolling in any VM guest is painfully slow and jerky. It used to work. Now with VMware Fusion 11 it is broken.
So? No answer on this?
Has anyone else experienced the issue that mouse wheel scrolling SUCKS in guest VMs? It takes 8 "steps" of the scroll wheel to make 1 "step" worth of scrolling; 7 "steps" are totally ignored by the guest and only every 8th step counts.
This is affecting ALL my virtual machine guests regardless of their operating system. That means it is NOT a configuration issue of a guest OS.
Mouse wheel scrolling works as expected in the Mac host (every "step" of the scroll wheel results in scrolling; no steps are ignored), so this is NOT an issue with my Mac or my mouse.
The only thing remaining is VMware, where mouse wheel scrolling used to work perfectly and started acting this way ever since an update in the not-too-distant past.
Does VMware care? I haven't seen any substantive reply to this thread.
