Dear Adobe, it probably makes no sense to write, cause the problem persists for many years already, and users ask for that for many years, but if there is a slight chance,
PLEASE, do aling mouse functionality across your product, so that the middle mouse would be hand/pan on the timeline in Premiere Pro.
You can use the "H" key as a shortcut to use the Hand tool. Just press H and drag along the timeline.
If you really want to use the scroll wheel, try AutoHotkey or some other binding software
If you're one of the Adobe support team, I'd like to address this issue straight to you.
Otherwise, sorry for complaining!
1. switching from one tool to another is time-consuming, especially, if you need to do a lot of small changes in many places.
2. Many Adobe programs already use the middle mouse as a navigation control on the timeline, more closely to Premiere: Audition and Aftereffects.
I'm not, sorry, I just help out on the forums. I understand it can be time-consuming, but using a hotkey would make it much less time-consuming. Either way, to get a feature added, your best bet is to submit it through the feature request page.
I do agree with you though. In Premiere especially, the Timeline is really important. So if this feature has been implemented in all the other programs, why not Premiere?
