How to add keyboard pan (shift view) to AutoCAD?

A - answer To move your screen view using the keyboard shortcuts you can use simple menu macros assigned to given keys - e.g. to the combination of Ctrl+arrow on the numeric keypad.

This is e.g. a macro shifting the view left by 1/3 of the current view size:

'_-pan (trans (list (* -0.33 (getvar "viewsize")) 0) (- 1 (getvar "worlducs")) 1)

If you want to add the keyboard panning to your AutoCAD, load/add (see the command _CUILOAD) the menu file kbdpan.cuix from the section to your AutoCAD environment. Then you can use the combination Ctrl+arrows on your numpad (up, down, left, right) to pan the current view, always by a fixed amount - a third of the view size.
