Middle-mouse scroll in panel under cursor

I suspect there is no simple way to change this UI behavior, but ask anyway: Can I make the middle-mouse wheel operate on whichever panel is directly under the cursor (as in blender)?

Currently, I move my cursor out of the drawing window onto the structure tree or properties panel, for example, but when I try to scroll up or down, the model or paper space view zooms in or out instead. To scroll in one of the panels, I have to actually click (left or right) on something in that panel first.

Oddly enough, the requested behavior occurs in reverse, that is, if I am actively scrolling within a panel, as soon as I move my mouse away and into the drawing view, scroll-wheel zooming takes over. In fact, this even happens while in the midst of inputting a value into a property field, and the field gets deactivated, which ironically is what I do not want to happen if I am not finished entering a value.

  • Thank you, @CADMebel. Because blender behaved as I wanted, I had thought it was BricsCAD rather than an OS issue.

    That scroll inactive windows setting works brilliantly on Windows 10.

    On Windows 8, though, where I am testing V20, I find no equivalent mouse setting. However, via stackexchange I discovered and installed freeware Taekwindow, which has solved my troubles on that machine in under 44 kB.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
