Shift-Scroll Fix for macOS [Fabric]


Shift-Scroll Fix is a very simple mod which fixes some annoying bugs related to scrolling while holding shift:

  • Minecraft 1.20.2 and newer: fixes bug causing scroll direction to reverse while holding shift on macOS. (MC-266429)
  • Minecraft 1.20.1 and older: fixes bug causing scrolling to be impossible while holding shift on macOS. (MC-121772)

How does it work?

Holding shift on macOS while scrolling is supposed to make things scroll horizontally. Minecraft versions 1.13 to 1.20.1 simply ignore horizontal scrolling, and Minecraft version 1.20.2 and higher reverse scrolling direction while holding shift. This mod detects when you are scrolling horizontally and "converts" it to vertical scrolling, which lets you scroll normally through your hotbar again while (shift) sneaking for example.


Just drag and drop the .jar file in the mods folder, launch the game and you should be able to scroll normally while holding shift. No dependencies or configuration needed.

Compatibility with other mods

This mod should be compatible with most other mods, but but feel free to open an issue on GitHub if you find one that isn't.
