Bug Description

There has been some transformational work in both eeschema and pcbnew on supporting trackpads and the Magic Mouse, which are the two common input methods in macOS. For me, the ability to set "touchpad panning" (which applies to the mouse as well and is now the default) is the difference between Kicad being useful or novelty on macOS, so a big thank you to those that implemented it!

This bug is relatively simple then - pl_editor (aka PL Editor or Page Layout Editor) has no such equivalent feature!
