Bug Description

I think we should have a setting in reference for disable cross-link to pan the windows/change current focus in either pcbnew, or eeschema. This would be useful for me use case:

When I try to do component placement with hotkey "T", and enter reference in pcbnew while look at eeschema to relative area. Without disable eeschema to pan windows, it very hard for me to focus on schematic to do multiple component all at once. I have to print out my schematic as a work around for this.
