I made this AutoHotKey script for those who don`t want to break it`s brain and fingers each time you switch between these applications.

It remaps Adobe pan and zoom to be compatible with Word, Explorer for zoom (Cntr+Wheel for zoom instead of original Alt+Wheel) and Middle Mouse Button for panning like in SW.


#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.

; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.

SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.

SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.


GroupAdd, AdobeGroup, ahk_class illustrator ; Add illustrator to the group

GroupAdd, AdobeGroup, ahk_class indesign ; Add indesign to the group


#IfWinActive ahk_group AdobeGroup


; zooming by Cntr+Mouse wheel instead of Alt+Mouse Wheel




;panning by MidleMouseButton


Send, {Space Down}{LButton Down}

while GetKeyState("MButton")



Send,{Space Up}{LButton Up}



esc::v ;change esc to select (v)


CapsLock::esc ;change CapsLock to esc


File is attached for convenience.
