Disable main movie/stage panning when zooming in?

Hi all-

Is it posible to disable main movie drag (panning; moving the stage with the hand tool) when zooming in? I am trying to develop a script for selecting multiple objects when holding CTRL pressed. It works but only if I don’t zoom in, else the default drag, or panning, takes over and I can no longer click and drag the pointer to select objects.

Thanks for any helpful suggestion
