Dear Adobe, could you please make it possible to access the hand tool functionality via the middle mouse button / scroll wheel. The same way it works in After Effect and all other 3'rd party software. It will excellerate all the workflow.


Thanks in advance.  🙂

Dear Adobe,

 

it has been more than a year for this rather simple feature request, and it is not yet implemented in the current 2021 premiere. when can we expect this to be done?

This is something that can probably be accomplished with either the mouse manufacturers or a third party mouse setup utility.  Do some googling and I'll bet you find something.  And if you find something, post back and let people know

thanks for posting.  Can you tell us the manufacturer and model?  Might help someone here.  Personally, I have "H" on the keyboard mapped to the handtool.
