Yeah, I could double click faster. But playing with the mouse or touchscreen still moves the board frequently enough. (Default it to off if you must)
I agree, it is nice to get it set where you want it and at the size you want it, then lock it and forget about it. It would be cool to have a cookie or something that saves the setting so it doesn't have to be adjusted every time you play.
Lock the map to the screen. I accidently moved it off screen and could not recover it!
I believe there is already a ticket on this issue.
And yet it's still not fixed. The code already exists, just re-enable it.

Prevent the map from ever leaving screen completely (or very small distance where the map can move off screen) instead of infinite movement. Same for zooming, minimum and maximum zoom limits should be more appropriate.
When replaying a game with the same settings, it would be nice if the game size and position would reset to the same settings again as well.

The default should be a fixed size and location. then have a button to unlock that and let ppl play with it if they want

Add a lock button to the map so that you can accidently move it with your mouse. Would benefit people that try to do speed runs or play very fast.

The drifting, sliding map drives me insane. I hate it. I had no idea there was once a way to lock it in place. Bring it back!
