Hand Grabber tool icon

When the Hand Grabber tool is selected, you can click and drag the mouse across the music in any direction to shift its position on your screen, as though you’re sliding the score page across your desk. In most cases, it’s a faster, more efficient way of moving around the score than using the scrollbars. You can switch to the Hand Grabber tool—regardless of which tool is highlighted on the palette—by pressing OPTION+COMMAND while dragging.
