When a map is rotated at zero degrees, using the arrow keys pans the map in all directions when digitising, while maintaining the current zoom level. This is essential to be able to use the keyboard to move the map so that digitising with the keyboard can be uninterrupted.

When the map is rotated off zero then using the arrow keys to pan causes the map to be zoomed out, which means I have to keep zooming in with the mouse each time and losing the scale because it doesn't rescale in the same steps as using the mouse wheel does.

It should be possible to pan when the map is rotated, the same as when it is at zero degrees, with the arrows on the keyboard, without losing the current zoom level.
