I'm frustrated to find that use of a mouse zoom wheel on now changes the zoom level for me by 3 levels. I thought this was a problematic setting on my own computer, but I see that a colleague is equally frustrated. Is this intentional? Does it effect everyone? Is it going to get fixed? It's horrible... always needing to adjust zoom level with the buttons on the edge of the window.

Not for me, scrolling just zooms for a single step. Firefox Quantum 60.4.0 on Linux. Which operating system and browser are you using?

I don't see this either, just the usual single step (Chrome, Windows 10).

@Rostranimin, what browser on what OS are you using? Also is there any other information that might be relevant?

I don't know whether the last comment on this (old) Leaflet issue is relevant

Note my own answer to the question below. I'm on Chrome when encountering the problem, Windows 7. It's new. At the moment I only know that it seems to be a problem also for colleagues (same company, same PC model, same Windows build, etc - probably also on Chrome, but I didn't check).

EdLoach - does use Leaflet to serve up the map? That wouldn't surprise me - I just never checked before.

@Rostranimin: yes, it does use Leaflet.

I had this same problem recently which I resolved by going to the Windows Mouse settings and changing the "Choose how many lines to scroll each time" setting to 3 (the default).

This assumes the "Roll the mouse wheel to scroll" setting is set to "Multiple lines at a time".

No there hasn't (to my knowledge).

I'm answering my own question. Transferring to another system completely (different building, organisation, etc) the problem goes away. At the moment it appears to me that somehow this is something which is a problem only within my office (unless anyone else confirms the behaviour).

Why this is happening remains a mystery.

@Rostranimin: possibly an organization-wide change for your computer settings?
