Lock the position of the artboard as an option in full screen.

* Grabbing the screen (spacebar) could move it
* Scrolling would be disabled.

This is important when doing iOS (iPhone or iPad) design that requires a mirror of the artboard using a tool like Liveview (

When the artboard is always moving around (when you touch a scrolling mouse like magic mouse) the artboard has to be repositioned all the time.

I can totally relate! I use Liveview as well. couldn't find a place to lock the scrolling down, but I did find a work around.

If you open up Window > arrange > new window....

This will open a duplicate window so you can work on one and use the other for liveview. This really only works if you're running a large monitor or a duel monitor setup. There are a few glitches when working this way, but still saves time and effort over all.
