there are a lot of folks that use scroll for scrolling, not zooming. and use zoom in/out gestures for zooming.

actually, Reaper uses scroll for zooming and I consider this to be bad, non-intuitive and non-consistent approach. current S1 zooms on zoom and scrolls on scroll and that's way better.

Hi robertgreer2,

In case you didn't know:
You can hold the Ctrl key pressed and use the mouse wheel to zoom.
Furthermore, you can hold the Shift key (or Alt - I don't remember).
The one combination is for vertical zoom, the other one for horizontal.

If you dislike this, there are surely 3rd party tools which can change the mouse wheel funtionality.
So when you use just the mouse wheel, it would be the same as Ctrl+mouse wheel.

It would surely be a good option to have.
