    I recently switch from Maya to Blender, and I love that I can easily pan around with "Alt+Shift+Left Click" instead of the standard "Middle Click" pan. Many computer mice have awkward middle click buttons, and I've found that the "Alt+Shift+Left Click" shortcut in Blender is far easier for me to use.

    Currently "Shortcuts" in Unity only allow keyboard input and there is no "3D Viewport/Pan" command to replace. It'd be awesome if Unity could add a "3D Viewport/Pan" command and allow mouse input to be combined with keys in Shortcuts.

    I created an AutoHotkey script that maps "Alt+Shift+Left Click" to a Middle Click hold, but I can't get it to feel as smooth as Unity's Middle Click pan, which is why I made this feature request. If you want to run the script for yourselves, save the attached text file as a .ahk and run it with AutoHotkey. Thanks!
