For years I have used the command/ctrl + spacebar shortcut as a way to drag and zoom but after updating to PS 2019, that shortcut is not working. Does anyone know how to restore this function?
I have the same problem! I've just installed Photoshop 2020, and when I hold Ctrl+Space and drag the mouse, instead of zooming, it draws a zoom selection box! Resetting the prefs made no difference.
There's no way I can use Photoshop like this! I feel so handicapped not being able to zoom quickly and smoothly. Losing this feature would be like having an arm chopped off! The only reason I "upgraded" to this version was for the bug fixes, but I'm happy to go back. I could work around the bugs.
I wonder if this has something to do with OpenGL? I notice that this version of Photoshop has no option to show the pixel grid, which apparently requires OpenGL?
My OS: Win 7 x64
My graphics card: Sapphire ATI Radeon 4670

I also notice this version of Photoshop has no option to show the pixel grid. I wonder if that is related to the problem?
I'm on Win 7 x62, with a Sapphire ATI Radeon 4670 graphics card.
Update: I've made some discoveries about this problem:
First, the feature is called "Scrubby Zoom". There's a "Scrubby Zoom" checkbox in the zoom tool. It's grayed out on my machine.
The reason it's not working is because this feature uses the GPU, but Photoshop no longer accepts my GPU! This is ridiculous as it's a perfectly good GPU.
So rather than buy a new GPU, I'm just going to have to revert back to an earlier Photoshop!
I was having this same issue, finally found the solution on a different forum.
If the bounding box around your artboards is white, as mine was, you might be in "Overprint Preview". You can turn it off by simply going to View menu and uncheck "Overprint Preview".
The default keyboard function for Overprint Preview is "ctrl+alt+shift+y" so it is possible to toggle it by mistake
Hey guys it's not that hard !! Just try doing ctrl + E , you will thank me later ❤️

Ctrl+E is a shortcut for merging layers and does not apply to this thread about Zoom shortcuts.
Highlight layers you want to merge, then Control + E
Highlight the layers you want to merge, then Command + E
Has anyone figured this out?
Scrubby zoom would make my day so much happier.
I use Win 10 and the latest version of Illustrator.
If you go to Preferences > Performance, is "Use Graphics Processor" checked? GPU needs to be enable for Scrubby Zoom to function.
In Illustrator, I don't get "Use Graphics Processor".
Under Preferences > Performance is: "Compatible GPU available".
Under this is "GPU Performance" and "Animated Zoom".
Both are checked.
But unchecking "Animated zoom" may have fixed it! A million thank yous!
