It would be great if I could 'Grab' and move files in the preview pane, especially PDFs in my case.

I mean, to scroll up and down documents, also to move to the side when zoomed in.

If it is already there, I don't know how to do it!


Thanks!

I still think this would be a good idea!

Grabbing is a good idea for PDF's with large canvas sizes, or if you zoom into documents a lot. I don't think there's a way to "grab" with your mouse in Foxtrot today. However, one work around is to turn off "automatic resize", and then use arrow keys to view side-to-side.

Not sure to understand what you mean; if you want to scroll the previewed document, can't you use the two-finger (or whatever is defined in your system preferences) trackpad / magic mouse gesture, or mouse scroll wheel (with the shift key to scroll horizontally)?

What I had in mind is what works in Photoshop when you press spacebar and click and hold down the mouse button: you get to 'grab' the document and can move it around within its window, until you release the mouse button.

This can help when you want to scroll a document by half a page, or move it slightly left or right. I would find this useful because not all document are displayed in the preview pane at the same size—"Zoom to fit", "Actual Size", etc.

It helps when you have zoomed into a document preview, but need to see something that is only slightly outside the viewing area, and scrolling would take you too far.

Does that make sense?

Thanks!
