I am using LR 5.6 on a Macbook Pro (OS X 10.9.4.) When attempting to crop, the hand tool often does not appear when I place the cursor inside the Crop Overlay Border. All I get is the pointer, which makes it impossible to reposition the photo inside the border. This happens intermittently (more often than not) and is only resolved when I restart Lightroom. I notice that this problem has arisen in other Adobe applications without satisfactory or consistent resolution of the issue. My space key is not stuck and the only browser open is Safari. Help!
On my computer the grabber it appears after I have cropped the image so that part of the image has been eliminated. Does that not happen for you?
Sometimes it appears, but more often it stops after I have had LR open for a while.
