Spacebar not working as quick Pan / Hand tool
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,
same issue!! have had it on multiple computers and both CS6 and CC
Me, too, I updated my Illustrator just now, too... Its super annoying, I deleted Plist and Adobe Prefs before still didn't work
Restarting Chrome always solves this problem, but it happens a lot.
This happened to me and I restarted my computer and now it works.
Having the same issue and it's incredibly irritating. Please sort it out and get me back my quick hand tool.
Have been working on projects all day and all of sudden this is happening .... I have deadlines!!!
Add me to the list. Some other similar occurrences in addition to getting stuck in the hand tool (when I'm using the selection tool:
+ Selection tool sticks to an object and won't let go.
+ Selection tool grabs the entire window (tab) and won't let go.
These behaviors seem similar.
I've noticed that this happens more as my files get more complex or contain photos or even screen grabs. I'm on a current MacBook, but replicated the problem on my older machine. I'm also forced to use this version because everyone we work with (large global agency) is on the current version of Illustrator.
What is other options? I need my chrome while working, other browsers are to slow for me
Was having the same issue and quitting Chrome totally worked!
"Quit Chrome & Safari if opened and no need to restart Illustrator it should work fine. Unbelievable but true."
THIS WORKED! THANKS MATE:)

Everything was working fine until yesterday, and just like that, the spacebar shortcut stoped working. I did no software update in the last few days and I don't use Safari or Siri at all. This must be one of the shortcuts I use the most... This is NOT OK!
Is this a problem with iOS/Adobe compatibility problem?

hey Adobe team, wtf? spacebar doesn't work half the time, then you have all these idiotic "tool tips" that popup. we're pros. i don't want tool tips. i want to be able to work! been using adobe products since Illustrator '88 and you guys are trying my patience. FIX THE PROBLEM!

same issue :/ my spacebar stopped working
Same issue. Can't find a fix. I'm on a MAC. Don't ever have Safari open. Tried closing Chrome. Closed all manner of apps. Don't have Webroot. Wacom driver is latest update. So annoying. This needs to get fixed by Adobe.
To the Adobe Admin Team ... Is anyone working on this? Clearly there is an issue affecting many of us. Thank you!
I have the same issue, even with all browsers off. I'm on a Mac.
I have had the same issue since fresh install CS (subscription) last spring. All the updates are kept current.
For me, this happens on WINDOWS (Win10, all updates from Feb 2018 forward).
I refuse to work while closing my browser (Chrome), which doesn't even seem to work for me anyway. This needs an ADOBE fix, not some lazy workaround. We all pay way too much for this software to have this little support.

I have the same issue. Not using Safari. Sometimes it works then sometimes it doesn't. Has Anyone (I'm looking at you Adobe!) solved this permanently?
