--- Comment #3 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
The Draw module already has the Zoom & Pan control (View -> Zoom), where
<Shift>+LMouse click activates pan control for dragging view at the point of

Could see utility of that behavior if possible to implement in other modules,
i.e. if it is not specialized to the Draw canvas.

Otherwise while the vertical and horizontal scroll bars do implement Pan
controls, because the point of selection is at the canvas edge the cursor has
to be moved away from work onto the scroll bar--so repositioning of the pan can
end up imprecise, especially when used with longer documents as noted.

Implementing a common a Pan control--the ubiquitous Hand icon--acting at the
point of selection for all modules seems reasonable.
