Spacebar isn't working as a shortcut hand tool.
This feature was working yesterday on my AdobeCloud Illustrator app. I got a notification that there were updates on the Cloud but it wasn't for Illustrator. When I went into the program today, I am now unable to use the spacebar as a temporary Hand tool. I didn't change anything in my preferences. Nothing was different than how I use the program since yesterday. Not sure how to fix this.

(tried a few things based on other sites/threads).
Save your work, close all Adobe apps
(didn't work for just Illustrator. I had to close Photoshop and InDesign to make it work)
Option + Click-Finder (in Dock): Relaunch
(Takes just a few seconds)
Opened Illustrator again and problem was solved.
Some threads also said they had to restart computer and issue was fixed. Mine worked just doing the Relaunch Finder thing.
FYI: I'm still running an older CS 5.1 but from my understanding, it's the same issue with the apps running, any version, even CC.
One helper said this issue happens at random times from using the Command + H (hide) in any of the apps. I know this or something similar has happened to me in the past but I've been a designer using Adobe products since 1990 and it's very rare to me.
Hope this helps someone 🙂
This is very annoying. All of the other apps are working fine. Please escalate a solution. Thanks!!
