    Hand tool also selects objects, instead of only panning; isn't "selecting" what the Select tool is for?

      I am using the hand tool to quickly pan through pdfs. Frequently, instead of panning, the hand tool selects an object on the page, instead of panning. Why on earth would you confuse the user interface by providing a distinctly separate tool (the select tool) for the purpose of selecting an object, and then also include that same functionality in the panning tool?

       

      I see that someone half-way thought this through by providing an option under Preferences > General for "Make Hand tool select text & images", which I have deselected. However, this doesn't actually fix the issue. The panning tool still selects text objects! How do I make it stop this?
