It would be an awesome help if one could drag the canvas with space+drag independent of zoom level or "reveal" level. Sometimes I want to move to a handler outside the visible Canvas and can't grab by flicking to it due to drag lock on "revealed" canvas and so I have to zoom out to grab it.

Hope There is more people supporting this idea.
How do you work with this particular issue?

There is a way to do this; you just have to tweak a "secret" setting.

This is now a simple preference in Preferences > Tools > Overscroll.

Yes. Unfortunately, Overscroll suffers from an annoying bug. Just in case, a friendly reminder:

It would be great to have it fixed some day! Thanks.
