Subject: Panning in real time

By panning in real time, you control the pan at the same time you move your mouse.

Using real-time pan in large drawing files can be memory intensive.
It may be helpful to set the ZOOMDETAIL system variable to a higher number to reduce the number of entities that display. For example, if the value is set to 10, only the 10th entity will display when panning and zooming in real-time.
