In Pattern Editor I'm unable to scroll up/down or left/right. Have never been able to do it. Am I missing something?

If you mean using scroll bars, there are no scroll bars in PE. Use the Pan tool in the Zooms menu to move around the screen.

Lisa, thanks. Had a feeling this would be the case. I'm spoiled with my Mac.

Quick question, pan doesn't have a keyboard command now, does it? I never used it before because it didn't but can't find it if that changed. I usually move around by just hovering the cursor and then using my mouse wheel to zoom to that spot ..like a bad action movie sequence.  ; )
Thanks

Yes, it has a keyboard command. Hold the Alt key down and drag your mouse. Release the Alt key and press Escape to end Pan.

If you go to the Pattern Editor Program Help and click on Keys, you will see a list of other keys with special functions including the Alt/Pan key.

Okay, I went into SE and clicked on the header menu, - HELP>PROGRAM HELP> and then the pop up with all the topics showed up, but I looked at all the tabs and didn't see anything about keys listed. Was I looking in the wrong place?
