OK then, what machine did you used to use, and what are you using now.
That was my thought when I replied, without actually asking.....so that
I could do a rough comparison to see if my machine is causing the
problem.

I've sort of got a solution to the schematic pan, but it's not practical
unless you've got the same mouse as me, as I can program the scroll
button so that when pressed, I can pan around the screen.  But it's not
as good, or fast as the PCB method!

I didn't mean that second part for you specifically; it was just part of
my
train of thought to all the people that complain about this or that
being
slow: panning, autorouting, saving and loading of files.

So anyway you got my point about the PCB being able to right button pan
but
the schematic can't do it. It woud be nice if it could.
