space bar doesn't work to temporarily switch to pan tool

Postby srdesigns » May 1st, 2018, 6:26 am

For some reason for me, the space bar is not working to temporarily switch to the pan tool. Any idea why? I am running a MacBook Pro with the most recent system software.

This is kind of annoying since I am a graphic designer and use Adobe products (Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign) on a daily basis and am used to holding down the space bar to pan around a document. I keep doing this in Live Home 3D Pro and nothing happens.

Go top left "live home 3d pro" - go "preferences" - go "miscellaneous" - "spacebar activates 3d tool" you choose from "pan", "look around" and "orbit"

Hmm, I checked in preferences and it is set to pan. Still does not work.

I use "orbit" but I have to make sure that I have deselected everything by clicking outside the project "click heaven or grass or floor" otherwise it does´nt work. Then I can hold down the space bar and orbit with the mouse.

For me, it worked both in 2d and 3d mode. May be there is another issue?

It just doesn't work for me on orbit either. I make sure I deselect everything but when I hold down the space bar it just draws a selection box and selects stuff.

Close the program first. Then run Terminal application from "Applications > Utilities" folder (press CMD+SHIFT+U while in Finder to open this folder). After that, copy & paste next line into Terminal window, followed by pressing Return on a keyboard to execute this command:


defaults delete com.belightsoft.LiveHome3DPro.plist


This will reset program settings. You can use the application after that.

Thanks, I contacted support directly and got this same thing to try in Terminal and that worked. It is now working for me. Thank you!
