I think the point of ’ Things I have tried’ is to inform the things that I have done to the viewers, and I am definitely not trying to invite any suggestions or judgements about what ‘shouldn’t be done’.
You could just mention - ’ try looking at the forum’ without adding ’ instead of asking a bot’ , which is neither a needed nor helpful opinion.
What specifically do you mean by “pan tool”? Do you mean like in a browser, when you click middle-mouse, and can just auto-scroll by moving the mouse slightly up and down? Or do you have a favourite example from another tool?
I thought Obsidian could pan when you click (or hold) the middle mouse button. But I’m testing it and it doesn’t work. I wonder if older versions were working.
Tell us your OS. Different operating systems have different tools to take control of things like this, even when it isn’t supported directly in the app. For example, in MacOS, I use Hammerspoon, and I have hotkeys to bind page scrolling up and down, when my hands are away from the mouse/tablet.
