Feature request #21158
Homogenize map item pan and mouse scroll UX - make map item select mandatory

When using the map item "move content" tool to tune the extent of a map item, panning is working even if the map item is not a select frame, which is great, but zoom using scroll does not work, letting some users think there is no direct way to zoom with the mouse scroll.

This is by design, as it was too easy to accidentally change a map's zoom previously.
Oh ok. but users are really puzzled by the inconsistency.
Couldn't we homogenize behavior between pan and zoom? Making it mandatory to select a map canvas item to enable the pan/zoom tool makes sense to me. What's your opinion Nyall? others?

Changing bug request to feature request. The requirement would be to make it mandatory to select a map item to be able to pan or zoom with mouse scroll. The zoom/pan button needs to be greyed-out if the selected item is not a map item.
