When the Pan and Zoom feature is in operation two options are available in the Properties Toolbar:


Exclusive Mode simplifies the process of using the Pan and Zoom feature. When Exclusive Mode is enabled, the pointer ignores all interactive elements of documents other than base content. This makes it possible to select areas without the risk of accidentally selecting undesired items. When Exclusive Mode is disabled, the pointer recognizes and interacts with all underlying elements in the usual manner.

Properties opens the Properties pane to view/edit the properties for the Pan and Zoom feature. See here for information on tool properties.
