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,
Are the people deciding what to take away actually using the App? Have they been using it for a couple days or 10+years? Not looking good on you guys.
a lot of the hot keys aren't working now. old hot keys. WTF?

Thanks Rachael Hosein !! It worked for me too. Close your browser and it will work again. You can reopen your browser and the quick hand tool it still working.
This is absolutely disgusting, the fact that this is not working April 2020. WOW terrible

Please fix this. As this is a shortcut that has been around "forever", you can't just change it to "H" all of a sudden. It messes up the entire workflow.
Any updates on this? I'm having the same problem.
I can't use the move or zoom shortcuts. Illustrator is useless to me without these.

Thanks @kupu yusuf Closing my browser got it working again. Not sure the relationship there, haha.
Is this an April Fool's prank? I'm having the same issue
Thanks for fixing this issue, Adobe—I knew you could!
Also… April Fool.

Crazy irritating when it happens, but most often caused by some other software intercepting input from the keyboard and not properly passing it through afterwards.
If you are running any form av antivirus software, look a feature labeled something like Secure Keyboard Entry and disable it. At my company we use Webroot antivirus which caused this exact issue.
Please fix. So annoying! Help!!!!!!

How long does Adobe has to take to fix this? it has been more than 6 months since their last reply. annoying
Jane Smith commented
Help! Same problem here
@John Gettler: it works, but so do the other solutions, ONLY TEMPORARILY. It's a constant recurring, very frustrating issue. It occurs weekly and even daily, for me. It's unbelievable that it has not been fixed.

I know it sounds crazy, but the way to solve this is to shutdown your Mac, unplug it for a few minutes, and then boot it back up again, and CMD+Space Bar will again bring up the zoom, and Space Bar will bring up the hand pan tool. Try it.
