Default How can you have a visual tool that has a mixture of "protected" and "no select"?

How can you have a visual tool that has a mixture of "protected" and "no select"? I have a large visual tool that I have made a custom GUI for. I want the user to be able to double click on the visual tool to access the GUI. The problem is because the visual tool is so large if I set it to be protected when zoomed in I can no longer move around in the view. Adversely, if the visual tool is set to "no select", I can move but cannot open the GUI.

Put the recorder in a visual tool. Set the Visual Tool to No Select and the Recorder to protected.
