Depending what OS you're using, your computer's performance and likely a few other factors, you might notice that there's a slight lag when scrolling using the mouse wheel in Sublime Text. Here's what you have to do in order to fix it.

1. Click Preferences, Settings - Default

2. Search for "scroll_speed" and set it to 0. (It's usually set to 1.5 by default. )
3. Save and close the settings file.

By disabling smooth scrolling, we get rid of the slight mouse wheel scrolling lag we experienced until now.
