I understand why you want this, but the hand tool is already used to adjust the XAdvance, so that might be confusing.

Middle-mouse pan, and/or scrollwheel pan/scroll + ctrl to zoom like in the Glyph Edit Windows might work better.

yes hand tool is already used to adjust XAdvance, but there is other way, the xadavnce adjustment hand tool icon can be changed to arrow icon. other way is hand tool can be change color during the xadvace adjustment or position window.
