According to the help, one requires a middle mouse to pan. Since few standard mice have middle buttons, this is a poor choice for this all important function. The default should be the right mouse button when ever the mouse is placed in an open area with nothing else to select. That way right click can still be used to invoke a pop down menu when ever the mouse is placed over an object that might have a need for pop down menu options. Additionally, the Pan mouse key should be alterable and selectable from a Preferences option, since if one does have a three button mouse, we should not prevent a user from employing this hardware if they have it. The same might be said for all mouse buttons to allow the user to configure the mouse operation to that which is most comfortable and efficient for their tasks.
