Win mousewheel zoom not always working correctly versions 2015-2017


I'm struggling with zooming with the mousewheel. Was very frustrated in v2015, hoped it was just that version, but also in v2016 and 2017. Most noticeable when I zoom out and then try to zoom in. However, only happens sometimes, while other times, just stops working. Could not pinpoint what scenario was exact cause.

I have a number of graphics programs, and it doesn't happen anywhere else.

I did contact Tech Support, but got nothing to resolve it. 

I have searched here and elsewhere online, but either I'm not seeing it or not finding it.

Specifics, if that makes any difference: Win 8.1, Logitech Click! optical mouse, Logitech mouse M705

  • It's always good to know I'm not the only one, though I wish I knew what it was. 

    My workaround lately has been to use the keyboard, customizing the zoom in and zoom out to the left side of the keyboard where my hand tends to stay.
    However, it does certain increments with larger jumps when zooming in, so it's only getting me halfway to what I seem to be wishing for.

    I  found that if I click on a blank area of the UI surrounding the canvas then the zoom function works on mouse and tablet properly.

    Interesting. I wonder if there is some connect to how photoshop brushes sometimes can get wonky, giving very dark straight lines, when moving from a Panel back to the workspace. (Though most of my reading has been about tablet pressure in Win.) The mouse is definitely not registering something.
