Panning — Shifting Your View of the Graph

You can move your view of a graph up and down as well as left and right with the pan tool. Panning is useful when you have zoomed in on a graph and want to translate the plot to view different portions.

Click the hand icon on the figure toolbar to enable panning . In pan mode you can move up, down, left, or right. You can constrain movement to be vertical or horizontal only by right-clicking and selecting one of the Pan Options from the pan tool's context menu.

3-D panning moves the axes with the object, because the 3-D view is not aligned to the x-, y-, or z-axis. The axes limits do not change as in 2-D panning.
