LibreOffice Draw allows me to scroll vertically or horizontally using my mouse as follows:

Scroll Wheel: Scroll vertically
Shift + Scroll Wheel: Scroll horizontally

My question is: Is there any way to have free scrolling/panning on it? By free scrolling/panning, I mean the ability to pan in any direction, e.g. diagonally. Many applications allow you to freely pan using methods like:

  • A hand tool/ panning tool (click and drag, as in Photoshop or Illustrator)
  • Middle click button on the mouse

If LibreOffice Draw doesn't support these scrolling methods natively, is it possible to simulate free-scrolling externally? Maybe using an AutoHotkey script that sends the scroll vertically or horizontally events when moving the mouse?

There is, in fact, a panning tool. It is referred to as "Shift". It looks like an orange gloved hand hovering over a piece of paper: orange hand hovering over a piece of paper

Hope this helps!
