Wacom tablet questions


I just picked up an intuos5.  I am not really yet blown away but am thinking I will get used to it more.

I am wondering about the following things:

- are you supposed to hover the stylus OVER the tablet and just touch down when drawing or editing or should you turn the touch sensitivity down and drag the stylus and just press harder to draw?  I find it difficult to hover it in the right distance when moving across the pad and when touching down, it is usually not straight and the cursor just moves ... I dont want to start off with the wrong technique

- in LR4 I cant figure out how to use the finger touch function to pan when the healing tool is selected.  What I want to emulate is pressing spacebar and dragging.  It only works when pressing spacebar but i want to just pan with a gesture while the healing tool is active
