I've struggled to get even simple issues to be accepted as bugs. Recently I found that a pin with a "no connect" attribute can still get connected to a net. Obvious candidate for improvement, right? Nope, "not a bug, that is the way it is supposed to work". KiCad is supposed to generate invalid netlists? Seriously?

In schematic editor yes, but it will complain of you do DRC check. Same as you leave it unconnected but dont make noconnect marker on it.

Also tested that in pcbnew, in opengl mode you can make tracks and connect "no connect" pads together but DRC will complain.
In default view pcbnew wont allow creating tracks on noconnect pads.

And on original topic, I find panning with ctrl+scroll and shift+scroll normal as some CAD packages use it.
