# Free panning/scrolling on LibreOffice Draw

autohotkeylibreoffice-drawscrolling

LibreOffice Draw allows me to scroll vertically or horizontally using my mouse as follows:

Scroll Wheel: Scroll vertically
Shift + Scroll Wheel: Scroll horizontally


My question is: Is there any way to have free scrolling/panning on it? By free scrolling/panning, I mean the ability to pan in any direction, e.g. diagonally. Many applications allow you to freely pan using methods like:

• A hand tool/ panning tool (click and drag, as in Photoshop or Illustrator)
• Middle click button on the mouse

If LibreOffice Draw doesn't support these scrolling methods natively, is it possible to simulate free-scrolling externally? Maybe using an AutoHotkey script that sends the scroll vertically or horizontally events when moving the mouse?
