Title says it all.  I have become accustomed, by many other programs, to scroll horizontally by tilting the scroll wheel , but SnagIt doesn't do it, which is frustrating

I'm a Photoshop guy. I enable Zoom  with the control wheel in PS. That disables scrolling with the "Tilt Wheel" also.
 
So, I've always been a big fan of the "Pan" tool for limited scrolling. Which is triggered by the shift key in PS.

 In SnagIt it's Ctrl+Shift. Which works but is kind of clunky by comparison.

There's another option that's equally if not more clunky. Due to the spacing of the keys you must hit.
  Shift +Alt +Scroll Wheel ........That will give you Horizontal Scrolling.

I voted for Tilt Wheel Scrolling. Good luck with that.

On my own setup, it seems that just holding Shift and rolling the wheel allows left/right scrolling.

I suppose YMMV

Your correct Rick, I got there too. The Shift key for scrolling left/right works.

So does changing the batteries in your keyboard, LOL

I was screwing around trying to find the shortcut.I knew there was one and I was getting mixed signals from my keyboard. Shift and alt seemed to work every time.

I prefer to look up shortcuts I'm uncertain about.
TechSmith doesn't have complete listings of the ones they incorporate.

Nope, Shift + roll does not work for me.

Tilting the wheel works in other apps though

Shift? I thought it was spacebar.

I use the pan tool quite a bit, I know "Spacebar" is the industry standard shortcut.

What can I say? I was having a momentary brain malfunction. Good thing I wasn't designing software.

Hey guess what guys?  If you go to the recents tray and press the tilt wheel left and right, guess what happens?

How inconsistent is THAT!  We'll support it here, but not there.

They probably did that just to get your goat.

Actually it wouldn't surprise me to hear that the functionality is just built into whatever control they may be using to present that recents area. I think lots of things are that way when developers build applications.
