Just curious: Have you taken some time to get used to the way the scroll wheel works in KiCad, or have you turned it off immediately in:
Menu / Preferences / Preferences / Common / Pan and Zoom: Center and warp cursor on zoom?
If you leave this enabled and give yourself time to get used to it, you probably (hopefully?) learn to love it and wonder why so few other programs work this way.
It basically puts the whole pan and zoom thing in the scroll-wheel and you will forget that there are other ways to pan/zoom after a short while.
It does take some conscious effort to get used to it though. Whenever I have not used KiCad for half a year or so, I need some time to get used to it again, but because the function works so good I leave it on, and it’s ever faster to get used to it again. Just move the mouse cursor in the direction of an area of interest, and then use the scrollwheel to pan and zoom at the same time. If you just want to pan, then zoom one click in and out (or out and in).
All this panning and zooming is contra productive anyway. Nowadays you can buy monitors with
7680 * 4320 /1e6 = 33.1776 Mega Pixels!
A bit over my budget, and most of these also have much to small pixels to make them very useful for CAD work.
I am seriously considering a 4K monitor with a 108cm diagonal screen size. These start at around EUR650, or even less if you buy a “TV” and re-purpose it as PC monitor. More electronics for less money, the world is nuts.
