Addition of Hand Tool (like there is in Photo) to allow ability to grab and drag a document rather than using scroll bars

Recommended Posts

Is there the equivalent of a Hand Tool or possibility of adding it (as there exists in Photo) where one could grab and move the document, instead of using scroll bars?

Thank you.

Holding space key down and then dragging document with the mouse should accomplish that?

There already is a Hand Tool (or more correctly View Tool) last but one on the Tools (above Zoom and below Table).

At least using Windows and a mouse with a scroll wheel,  one can also just press down the scroll wheel and drag too.

Unlike other applications, the pointer doesn't change to the hand. But it otherwise works identically.

Does that work reliably for you in Publisher? I just tried it and I'm dragging left but the page is trying to move right in kind of a stuttering fashion.
