Toggle hand tool in Photoshop CC?

Jun 19, 2013 11:59 PM

Tags: #photoshop_cc

I'm on OS X 10.8x and just upgraded to Photoshop CC. I can no longer press Space to toggle the hand tool temporarily.


Are others experiencing this; am I missing something during migration?

    Victor, I am not a Mac user, but it seems there have been issues with the space bar and panning with Mac OSs.  This was a typical hit



    Does the H key work as it should?   A nice thing about using the H key is if you hold it down and drag with the left mouse button, it goes into 'Bird's eye view' which is a variation of the old Navigator panel.  It's quite a cool way to pan.

    Same exact problem here - I'm no longer able to use the space bar to pan around my compositions.


    There's another post in the forums asking about this issue on Windows too.


    Adobe may have removed the functionality for some reason. I suspect it's something to do with touch enhancements.


    I keep an Apple Magic Trackpad to the left of my keyboard and can use two fingers to pan around.

    Rebooting worked for me - thanks!


    I was also having the same issue in Illustrator CC with the space bar which is now working too.
