What problem?

I'm getting a little tired of this one - *you* may think it is wrong, 
others don't. Why do you insist on implying that others are wrong?  I think 
you could respect others opinions a little by phrasing your complaint not 
as a bug (which it clearly isn't) but as merely your preference. 
Re-centering after a zoom (which is your preference, the lack of which you 
are calling a bug) can be demonstrated to require a mental refocussing 
especially on large screens - so an argument could be made that Protel, by 
not re-centering after a pan (Home key) is better.

No bug here.

You are not being clear here.  What do you see as the issue?  I can see 
differences between printing in all sorts of applications.  What exactly do 
you not like in Protels Sch and PCB printing?

Minor issue.  We know that the 3D viewer, as it stands, is a premature, 
inadequate, bit of marketing fluff. Hardly worth commenting on it.

Panning - home key works the same in both PCB and Sch.  Right-click drag is 
not supported in P99SE Sch.  What is your complaint?
Zooming - the same in both PCB and Sch.  What is your complaint?
Function Keys - what would you like to be common across Sch and PCB?

JaMi, fess up, cobber - you were beta testing (just like I was).  Stop 
playing silly games.  You know exactly what has been fixed and what hasn't.
