I guess the title says it all. I was looking for a way to e.g. hold down a modifier key and "grab" the storyboard so that I can stop trying to aim for the scrollbars every time I want to scroll freely with a mouse.

I found this key chart http://cocoasamurai.blogspot.se/2011/03/xcode-4-keyboard-shortcuts-now.html but it didn't help.

This is about a development tool and so would be on topic in StackOverflow it is also on topic here but I suspect there are more Xcode users on SO so try migrating it to there. –  Mark Mar 17 '13 at 12:26

It depends on what type of mouse you're using, but on my magic mouse, I can scroll the storyboard in any direction by dragging one finger over the mouse.

You can also move it around with the command key and arrow keys:

⌘ → Scroll right

⌘ ← Scroll left

⌘ ↓ Scroll down

⌘ ↑ Scroll up

Note that you'd have to give the storyboard focus first, by clicking in a blank area.

Thanks, didn't know that, pretty handy. Unfortunately I have a logitech mouse :) –  Andreas Mar 18 '13 at 15:03

Smart Scroll will help you here. Though it has many features, one of it is grab and scroll, which is exactly what you need.
