Description

Can we pan using WASD/other keyboard buttons, like in Google Earth?
W - Up
A - Left
S - Down
D - Right

This would allow users to split polygons with right hand and move around the QGIS map rather than have to cross arms to use arrow keys on QWERT keyboard.
I know there is a configure shortcuts options via Settings, Configure Shortcuts, but I don't think this gives me the option to set arrow keys?

WASD (,AOE on Dvorak keyboards; ZQSD on AZERTY keyboards) is a set of four keys on a QWERTY or QWERTZ computer keyboard which mimics the inverted-T configuration of the arrow keys.
