Panning made easy
Did you know...
...that there is an easy way of panning the drawing area without risking moving components by mistake?
You are currently working on a drawing consisting of a large number of components. You have also applied dimensions and used help lines. Perhaps it looks something like Figure 1 below. If you want to pan the drawing area in a case like this, it is very easy to select a component by mistake and perhaps move it or even delete it.
