Normally, I can press spacebar to activate the view tool (the hand tool) temporarily. How can I do that while entering text within a text frame?

I couldn’t find a way to create a new shortcut for that in Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

You can press the Esc key to leave text editing mode.

Thank you! Sure, I knew that. I wanted a way to quickly pan and go back to editing text. I didn’t realize though that after pressing Esc the text frame remains selected, and pressing Enter activates the input cursor at the same position where I last left it. So for now I can use Esc, Spacebar+pan, Enter. I would much prefer one shortcut, perhaps Ctrl+Spacebar (Cmd+Spacebar), that would work consistently whether I’m in the text editing mode or not.
