Spacebar not working as quick hand tool on MAC
Spacebar has stopped working as hand tool as of 2018 update.
Thanks for the information provided to the Illustrator team.
We are able to reproduce this issue at our end and the engineering team is currently isolating this issue further to get to the root cause.
With Best Regards,
The shortcut for scale (spacebar + command) are gone too.

I'm having the same problem too over and over in illustrator and photoshop!! Isn't there anything we can do? :/
Are you kidding me?
You acknowledged this issue June 2019 and you still not fixed it yet?
Isn't that long enough Adobe?

I had this problem a while ago, and it just stopped.. also I was having trouble when saving a pdf as "save as" the document will not open right away, instead it kept open the original pdf. This last one was an ongoing issue.... I just had my tech department completely erase McAffee and install the newest version, and I'm finally able to save as with no problem, and hopefully the space bar issue doesn't happen again.
Not sure McAffee is the real issue behind .. but it certainly worked for me..
Hope you guys get to the bottom of it.
Same problem! :(
It's February 2020... Have you gotten to the root cause yet? Unbelievable...

It is happening for me too
Come on Adobe, what are you playing at! This sort of bug should not b allowed to persist. Please sort this. I'm running cc2018.

Come on Adobe fix this **** issue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We pay good money to use an application that should work. This is really messing up my workflow.

I was having the same problem where command+spacebar pulled up Siri instead of zooming in.
I changed the commands for Siri (as well as spotlight) in system preferences and its working fine now.
Hey guys, I found another thread which seems to solve the problem. I noticed it wasn't just in AI, but also in PS. It seems to be a conflict of another program hijacking the spacebar. What I did was restart the computer, and start AI before any other program. This seems to have worked and AI has its spacebar back. Here's the page which helped me: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/spacebar-not-working-as-quick-hand-tool-on-mac-adobe-illustrator/td-p/10878044?page=1

for christ's sake.
This should be a very simple fix and is a very annoying new bug! Am running High Sierra - 10.13.6 and AI 23.0.4
This problem just started happening to my illustrator as well. MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. Illustrator 2019.
I didn't even opt for an update that I'm aware of, and now this is an issue on my Mac as well. This is going to make my job MUCH slower. Please fix this IMMEDIATELY.
Very annoying that it's not working.
