Scroll Properties

This Properties panel appears only for Scroll action buttons. Use it to scroll the window in which it’s located to show a specific portion of that window. The scrolling action is based on a point, and works in one of two ways: so that the point is at the top-left corner of the window, or so that the point is centered in the window.

The panel appears automatically when you choose Edit | Action Buttons | Scroll to create a button. After you’ve created the button, choose Edit | Properties, or choose Properties from the Context menu, to display the panel again if you want to change the scrolling action.
