    Dragging map won't pan when zoomed in

    A very puzzling issue: when I zoom the map all the way to street level, click the "Pan" tool, then drag the map slowly, MapPoint does not pan the map. The mouse pointer is the "hand" cursor, the button is down, the mouse pointer is moving across the screen but the map does not pan. Occationally, the map will move (more like a twitch) just a little bit and redraw itself but it is far from what I would consider normal panning. To get the map to move, I have to really whip the mouse across the screen.

    When I zoom out 1 level and drag mouse across the map slowly, it twitches a little more but the mouse pointer is still moving across the map without the map panning.

    When I zoom out 1 more level, the map follows the mouse pointer around like you would expect. The panning works as I zoom all the way out.

    I'm using MP2006 on Vista. I've also tried it on MP2009 on WinXP with the same results. (except, of course, there is no "Pan" tool to click first)

    I first noticed this problem while working on a program that automates MapPoint and uses the MapPoint ActiveX viewer. To be honest, I forget if this has always been this way or if I'm just noticing it now.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm, I wonder if it is the same machine? Could it be a graphics issue?

    Vista/MP2006 is my main PC. The XP/MP2009 is running in VirtualPC on the Vista box.

    Does MP in particular run into graphics issues? How would I tell if that's that problem?

    I don't know.. but if you try it on another computer and it works better, then maybe you can tell it is something specific to that machine.
