Re: [PATCH] Middle mouse button pan for eeschema and pcbnew drawpanel


Hi Dick-

I wish I checked my email more often... last night I already started
on extending the scroll region similar to what auto pan does. Your
suggestion of locking the cursor on limits would be a faster solution.

Do you want me to continue with extending the region, or would you
rather me just lock the cursor as you described?

By the way I wasn't implementing anything with ctrl/shift, I was just
referring to behavior of the mouse wheel scrolling function, that's
already in kicad (ctrl+wheel scrolls one axis, shift+wheel the other).
