This is pretty amazing but it seems I cannot scroll the viewport. I have multiple artboards. I zoom to say 50%. Now I only see some of them on screen. I want to keep this zoom ratio and pan around the screen so I can look at the different artboards. I can scroll up and down using the mouse but left to right - no. (Arrow keys doesn't do it).

 

I've searched for the answer but all I get is articles about adding scrolling to artboards - it is not what I want. (I'm nowhere near that level yet). I just want to see the artboards by doing what I can do in any graphics app - by keeping a zoom level and panning around.

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

Can you list out the OS you are running and the version of XD? On my Mac (10.15) and XD (35.1.12.5), I can move the canvas left and right using my mouse's "scroll" ability. I can also hold down the spacebar and click and drag the canvas as well.

Your space bar and drag fix worked.
