Pan Tool doesn't stay active when pressing space bar

Question

Pressing the space bar activates the Pan Tool but only for a brief second. It's flicks back to Selection Tool almost immediately.

 

One of my colleagues has this problem and now I have it too. Any ideas?

This works  -  Shut the machine down, restart it launching ONLY Vectorworks and no other applications, then test the space bar. If it works, open your other commonly used applications like your browser and email clients and see if the spacebar ceases to work after launching any of them in particular.

I have seen Outlook and other Office suite products cause this with the space bar specifically, normally an update from them corrected the issue within a few days. 

 

In very rare cases, resetting PRAM on Macs corr cted it as well, but I haven't needed to walk anyone through that in a very long time.

If you're running Safari, try closing that.  That pretty much always resolves this issue for me, which has plagued me for a few years now, regardless of hardware, Vectorworks version, OS version, or Safari version.
