1) For Pan mode could you create the ability to move deeds by
left and right mouse buttons to move deeds while in Pan?
I think to avoid confusion, there needs to be specific different modes for
the cursor. There is already 2, as indicated by the final 2 icons on the
1. Pointer tool mode, which lets you select a deed
2. Lat/Long tool, which lets you measure things
To support panning, there should be a 3rd icon just for that function.
While in Pan mode, deeds can't be selected.
If advanced zooming is allowed, that would be a 4th icon and mode for the
cursor (to draw a box to zoom to).
Of course, there could be hot keys to jump to any of these modes.
You have to be careful with using things like pressing both mouse buttons,
since someone may have it programmed to do something else. In any case,
Deedmapper responds to the button press, whichever occurs first, so it's a
little hard to do something different for both being pressed.
Nudging deeds would be useful. Other programs usually use Cntl-arrow, which
is already used in DeedMapper. Could use Function-arrow or Shift-arrow.
