Hi everyone. My middle mouse button is not working. Just the click, not the scroll behaviour. So I can't grab and move around the workspace. Is there another way to do this? With keyboard or something. Thank you.

If you use the spacebar with the left mouse button this should give you the hand to grab and move around the workspace.

I understand that it is possible to use other buttons to do this (like selecting the "pan" tool) but I am often switching between PDF (Adobe Acrobat Pro) and AutoCAD, where middle mouse button can click and drag to pan, and the scroll wheel zooms. Since I'm switching between the two, I would like them to have to same controls, while also being able to have the highlight tool selected in the PDF. Is it just not possible to remap the pan tool to the middle mouse button?

Yeah I second this a lot of people in that work with CAD feel this way. Their are several forum posts I have seen over the years about this. From a control stand point it is a very efficient way to naviagate a virtual space.

Which is, if you noticed, not a single hand interaction. Why do these designers expect everyone to work with a touch-based interface at all times

I can drag and move workspace only by middlemouse button on a Windows system computer, but I can't do the same on my mac.

I also have the same problem and it's frustrating me.

Same here, you're not alone.

I don't understand why there is a difference. I can do the same thing in PS & AI both in Mac & Win.

I mostly pan by holding the middle mouse button and zoom when holding Cmd but now, panning will allow me to only use the spacebar for that. Can this bug be resolved? it's messing up my workflow big time.

I think standardizing the same essential shortcuts of adobe apps would be convenient for users.
