When typing in a text box, what if the mouse wheel would move the cursor bar left or right when you rolled up or rolled down?  (up = left, down = right)

It would be important to only override the wheel function when a text entry box is in focus.

Maybe this is do-able with Auto Hot Key? Maybe no?

I don't know about how to do the restriction to text entry fields well, but as for the remapping, may be something like:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. WheelUp::Left
  2. WheelDown::Right

See Remapping Keys and Buttons for more details on remapping.
