Activate panning and zooming only after pen touches the tablet

Description of the Problem, or Question?


I was wondering if it is possible to change the panning (space + pen movement) and zooming (ctrl + pen movement) so that the panning and zooming activates only after I touch my tablet with my pen. Now the panning and zooming activates already when I hover my pen over my tablet. The behavior I am looking for can be seen in action on Krita and how it handles panning and zooming by default.
