Plain and Simple, it would be nice to be able to pan around the material editor graph. Please :D

You can't? I just tried it, and I can. I made a dozen nodes, and can click and drag around back and forth up and down. Now, its locked in a weird way, you can only pan around like that if there is a node off the edge of the canvas. Not like photoshop in full screen mode where you can pan around no matter what the zoom level is. In the MatGraph, as soon as all the nodes are on the screen you can't pan around.

It does feel weird not being able to pan all the time. Even if all the nodes are on the screen, I like to be able to pan to center on whatever node I'm looking at. Especially when I need to have the MatGraph window very small.

Right, mattjgerard has characterized the functionality properly. It's strange, to me, to not be able to pan arbitrarily regardless of zoom level like 3ds Max or UE4 material editor.
