Feature suggestion: use mouse wheel to adjust numerical field values

When a numeric field in an edit tab, such as a sidebearing value, scrolling with the mouse wheel moves pans the view up and down, which isn’t useful. But I think it would be useful if I could scroll up and down to adjust the value of the field. This way a user could alter the values without having to take their hand off the mouse; I think that would be more efficient.

I tried that and it seems to works quite well, even for touchpads. I hope that it is not changing values by accident. Lets see.
