Space bar to move image in window

I used to hold the space bar and I could move the image anywhere in the window which was great when I wanted to zoom in and work on a specific area.  Now it doesn't work.

How do I move the image around?

Thanks

Try resetting your InDesign Preferences:

Close InDesign. Then hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Windows) or Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift (Mac), and relaunch InDesign. Respond in the affirmative to the dialog asking if you really want to replace the preferences.

My graphics processor is ticked (I'm on a MacBook Pro 2014) so I guess that means it is.

I've reinstalled 2017 as nothing seems to be running right and I don't have time to work it all out!

Thanks

I should have changed InDesign to Photoshop!

Also, unlike InDesign, you can reset your preferences in Photoshop preferences.
