I'm going nuts ever since the space bar won't gove me the hand tool anymore. I'm using Photoshop 25.6, Mac OS Ventura, Mac Studio.

@Marijke22782352nqzj Open the Mac OS Keyboard Viewer (System settings/Keyboard/Input Sources/Edit)

Then open the keyboard viewer in the menu bar.

Click (dont type) the space bar a bunch of times and try again.

We've had this on both Ventura and Sonoma - once you do this the issue did not come back.

Thanks Kevin, I have done that.  I also read somewhere that quitting other apps might help so I tried that as well and things are working again. Very strange as this was never an issue.

@Marijke22782352nqzj if you have MS Office, I haven't seen the space bar be affected but I have had other shortcuts overridden if I open Office products first (excel, word, etc).
