    Default BlackBerry remote

    Is is me or is it not possible to scroll the playbook with remote. I can close windows but moving between text boxes and scrolling to bottom of pages seems not possible. I think I have tried everything and I find I still have to reach and touch the playbook.

    Default BlackBerry remote

    You can hold alt and scroll with trackpad or you can go into settings and enable the trackpad lock. This will allow you to hold in the TP for 2 seconds , you will feel a slight vibration and you can then drag the page. Click again to unlock. I use both but think holding alt and scrolling with the TP is the most practical.

    Well that is a huge help thankyou. Amazing what you can find out when you ask. I hate typing on the playbook so this new info make life much easier. I'm a lefty so tp and alt is not so natural but will mess with the track pad lock and using the screen to scroll works good.

    Well after messing with settings I don't seem to get a different outcome from use only trackpad or use only mouse and trackpad lock. I feel the vibe but cursor works the same in all modes. Only way is to actually hold alt and then scroll works. I have saved after making changes too. Still a huge improvement but will keep messing with it.

    I think that works awesome for me. I can just touch the screen with one thumb and scroll with the other. Actually seeing there is quite a bit of stuff on the local menu. Just never thought to look.
