Description _ tboudreau 2008-05-23 12:28:48 UTC
Most diagrams are too big to fit readably on the screen, so users have to zoom in.

One thing that would significantly improve the usability in the zoomed in state:
 - Use a hand cursor if the mouse is not over an element in the diagram
 - Allow mouse drags in that situation to scroll the diagram - so users can drag around the diagram within its scroll bounds

Simple and easy to do and would vastly improve the experience of navigating larger diagrams
