I've done a few meshes but am still relatively new to Blender. Does anyone use any alternative keys for panning that isn't the middle mouse button? I'm an artist so my hand/wrist is janky enough, but I can tell having to hold down the middle mouse key puts a lot of strain on it. (I also know Blender has a TON of commands- I wouldn't want to accidentally screw one up by binding the pan tool to it).

You can use "Emulate 3 button mouse" option.

Use Alt + LMB to pan.

Use ShiftAlt + LMB to move.

This option is in the input part in the preferences and is generally used for touchpads.

In 2.79:

In 2.8:

This option has a little incidence. As Alt is dedicated to that, even outside of the 3D View (in panels), you can not use it for some other operations, like Alt+Clicking a button (which in some case allows to set a value for multiple objects).

Use your numpad arrows, "8, 6, 2, and 4" to orbit, or hold Ctrl while using them to pan around.
