Hi ken,

The problem is that Ranorex just send the mouse scroll command to the operating system.
The mouse scroll is measured in "delta", this is usually a multiple of 120, which is not defined by Ranorex.
A workaround could be to add multiple mouse scroll actions to the recording. (Possibly a mouse click in between)
I hope this is a suitable workaround for you.
