Add the ability for us to pan around the canvas using the middle mouse button. It's more time saving to use it compared to going for the spacebar since your hand is already on the mouse.


We have been asking for this feature for over 10 years. We shouldn't have to look for third party software or buy gaming mice with programable buttons to jerry rig something close enough at this point. Some people can't use normal/gaming mice anyways due to injury or disability so we're locked out of those options.


Last I checked you have this canvas panning feature in After Effects. Why introduce super useful features, but keep them exclusive to only one of your apps? I've noticeed this so many times on different Adobe programs it's honestly annoying..
