Zoom/Pan with mousewheel


It would be nice if the mousewheel could not only zoom into but also pan in the mix. It is actually unusual that the mousewheel without the pressed Ctrl key does zoom.

Default behaviour of the mousewheel is panning. Only in combination with Ctrl the mousewheel zooms (examples: Windows Explorer, Wavelab Wave-Editor/Montage Editor).

It would speed up the editing process, because right now I have to explicitly grab the scroll bar with the mouse pointer to pan inside the mix, since the mousewheel doesnt support that. If Ctrl+wheel does zoom and wheel alone does pan (scroll), the user could navigate much quicker in the mix (left/right/in/out).

I hope you could conside this change - especially since it would be a change towards the default behaviour of the mousewheel inside Windows applications.
