Replace rectangle zoom with mouse panning and zooming
Panning and Zooming like in Google Maps is way nicer to use than the current implementation of rectangle zoom. Would be great to have such feature :)
By adding the Highmaps as a module in HIghcharts, we can get working mousewheel scrolling in Highcharts: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/6etwu5b4/

Can the same be achieved in a react application with highcharts react wrapper (highcharts-react-official)?
But with map module, its not adjusting the y-axis scale, when panning horizontally.
Should we pay for Highmaps licence just in order to get user-friendly zooming?

This feature should be included with Highcharts and Highstocks. The rectangle zoom isn't very user friendly (i.e. most people don't know exists and it doesn't work well as a zoom option). It would also be nice to be able to drag the charts up/down, left/right with the mouse cursor.
Still a good step! Any chance of having vertical panning? (Zoom a low region of the chart, scale is of course automatic, then pan to a higher region, where it would be cool to be able to pan vertically)

This would be excellent for a default option in Highcharts without relying off Highmaps!
