Having difficulty trying to use Ctrl + Scroll trigger

Ctrl + Scroll use for zoom can be very annoying because of accidental zooming in different apps. Scroll wheels have inertia and pressing Ctrl while the wheel is ending its scrolling leads to annoying accidental zooming in Outlook, Excel, etc.

I've tried to disable Ctrl + Scroll via a BTT Normal Mouse Scroll Down trigger to no avail. Any actions I've tried are not firing for me. Could you suggest any idea on how to troubleshoot this? Do BTT Scroll Down / Scroll Up triggers work for other people?

I've found only one tangentially related post: Is it possible to setup ctrl + mouse scroll to zoom in/out in a browser like on Windows?
