Vertical Scrollbar Too Hard to Grab

Using Chrome, the verticle scrollbar is so narrow that I can't grab it.  I drag my mouse over it from right to left and it changes to a double arrow to resize the navigation pane and then to a pointer to grab and move the page beside the scroll bar, but never to a pointer that allows me to drag the scroll bar up and down.

Navigation is extremely difficult and frustrating when you have a space with a number of pages you want to navigate to using the side navigation pane and scrolling up and down.

This was not a problem with the old layout, but the new confluence experience is much worse in this one way.

Is there any way to control the size or behavior of that scrollbar?

Thanks

Is it grabbable?  I assumed it was not, and only works with scrollwheel.  In either case ... so bad.

It is grabbable, but only in the narrowest of circumstances and if you try you'll go crazy.  I've actually started using IE instead of chrome, but IE is fraught with all sorts of other issues.  Not sure how we get attention on this issue.

Thanks for raising this. I often work with a mousepad on a laptop, and the current layout is barely usable. There's a tiny window of opportunity when the mouse pointer changes the narrow scroll bar to a darker colour and makes it grabbable. If you blink, you miss it, and if you clicked a bit too late, you inadvertently hide the left hand side menu.

I'd like to be able to revert to the old, wider scroll bar. 

I totally agree, it is very frustrating to use the vertical scroll bar.  I actually prefer the look and feel of the older version of Confluence.

Hello, 

 

For all the customers and users affected by this behavior, we have created a public report to have our developers working on increasing/modifying the width of the sidebar:

 

Increase Scrollbar's Width for the Sidebar

 

It would be really helpful and great if you could add your comments and start watching the report for new modifications. Comments like those will definitely help on increasing its visibility in order to have this modification implemented.
