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,
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.

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

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.
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! :(
