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.
Panning shifts the view of the data by modifying the axis limits. For axes in a 3-D view, if you want panning to modify camera properties of the axes instead, then right-click the axes when in pan mode and select 3D Options > Camera Pan and Zoom.
