I find it amazing that many other adobe products, it recognises when your cursor is hovering over the program monitor panel, then it is easy to zoom in and out (mouse wheel key) or pan (by holding SPACE BAR). However, in Premiere Pro, you can do neither.
The only way is to use the "Hand Tool" (You have to press "H" to select it and deselect it)
When in After Effects, you simply Hold down the space bar while your cursor is on the program monitor panel, then you hold down click and when you release space bar and click, it simply stops panning.
The only way to zoom in on Premiere Pro is by almost leaving the program monitor panel and clicking the preset options (e.g. 50%, 100%, 200% etc) OR by clicking NUMPAD + or NUMPAD - to zoom in and out. This way takes too much time and is not streamlined.
It is disappointing that Adobe has completely neglected this feature in Premiere Pro CC.
