Scrolling the map on-screen

One of the things I like to do is to zoom in pretty tight on the map in satellite view and "drive" the route, looking for anything that might be a problem in real life. With Streets & Trips the keyboard arrows do a good job of scrolling; in RVTW the arrows don't work - I have to "grab" a point on the map and drag it with my mouse. That gets tiring after a while - is there any way to make it so that the arrow keys will scroll the map?

I tried this on my PC running Win 10 and Firefox and discovered something odd. After zooming in the arrow keys donít scroll the map, but if I drag the route with the mouse just a little the arrow keys become active and will then scroll. Zoom level doesnít seem to matter, but if I zoom in or out I have to drag with the mouse just a little to reactivate the arrow keys. This works in both map and sat views on my computer.

I just tried that and it does appear to work - but I have to hold the arrow key down. It starts scrolling real slow, then picks up speed. The old S&T program would move the image one screen at a time with each button push - I guess I can get used to moving the screen this way...

What is one screen in S&T?

I always ďflyĒ the non-interstate portions of my intended routes, usually in Google maps sat view using the arrow keys and like the map to move in small increments, not big jumps.

In RVTW I found that holding down a key was good for a quick long scroll across the map and then tapping the key multiple times quickly scrolled the map in small increments to focus on the area Iím interested in.

Actually, I mis-remembered: each press of an arrow key moves the display a small increment in that direction.
