pan hand has a black x?

Recommended Posts

Hi Tubby - FYI -  If the page isn't zoomed in when thePan tool is selected, a small cross will appear beside the hand cursor icon that indicates that the tool cannot be used.

I suspect that your image is unable to be panned because it is entirely within the Editing Window.  If you do not have scroll bars at the sides of the Editing Window then this is the case.


Check the Zoom level and bump it up until scroll bars appear at the foot and right margins of the Editing Window.  Then the Pan Tool should work as you expect.


Also: you don't specifically need to select the Pan tool in order to pan an image.  Hold down the Spacebar and click and drag the mouse.  This works with almost all the tools.


Edit: Beaten by Pixey.
