The dialog is accessed by clicking Mouse Wheel Configuration under the System folder in the main Preferences dialog (DXP » Preferences). 

Options/Controls

Mouse Wheel Configuration

As noted in the grid, Launch Board InsightChange LayerZoom Insight Lens, and Insight Lens Auto Zoom are configurations that affect the mouse wheel only in the PCB Editor; Change Channel affects the mouse wheel only in the schematic. 
Action items that do not specify a specific editor will configure mouse wheel operations in all editors, including Draftsman.
  • Button Configuration - use these options to configure any keyboard button combination (Ctrl and/or Shift and/or Alt) that is required to be used along with the mouse wheel function (as listed in the grid) to perform that action.
