Spacebar not moving marquee selection on photoshop cs6 on macbook pro.  Have not found any workable answers on adobe forums.

On my MACbook pro retina display, OS X, I'm having a problem when running PHOTOSHOP CS6 extended where the spacebar doesn't move the selection of the marquee tool.  I've deleted the preferences file and also reset tool(all) but to no avail.  I've also searched every photoshop forum and searched on the web for solutions to this issue.  No help found!  Very frustrating.  Is there a solution to this issue?  If so, I certainly would appreciate knowing what it is.
Thank you,
frustrated PS user

I don't know what to say. I see the same behavior on both my Mac and Windows editions of Photoshop.
I select the Marquee Tool, draw out my Marquee. If I need to move it, clicking and dragging inside the marquee using my Trackpad ddoes the trick.
If I want to resize the Marquee, Ctrl or left-clicking and choosing "Transform" allows me to resize it.
The tool above the Marquee is the Move Tool, but I don't see to need it for that.
I see the same behavior down to CS6. I certainly would like to know Spacebar does not work like that for me.

  • Installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 on MacBook Pro OS 10.7.5, now my DVD player does not work. Ideas?

    I installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 on MacBook Pro, OS 10.7.5. Now my DVD player will not work. Any ideas?

    Problem solved. Yes, it was a coincidence. The problem had to do with my DVD preferences, not the Adobe installation. Thanks for your reply.

  • Photoshop CS6 on MacBook Pro

    Ok, so i downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS6 on my MacBook using the Adobe Download Assistant. My net speed is really slow (30 kb/s) so it took a while. Now the programme is 'Extractiong files' and also says "this may take a while."
    the extraction has been going on for 2-3 hours now. is something wrong?
    Also, i can see a file named 'Photoshop_13_LS16.dmg' (size: 774.1 MB) on the MacBook. but when i click on it, it gives me a message saying that the disk image couldnt be opened (reason: illegal seek)
    Should i wait more?
    (i have OSX Lion. the MacBook Pro is a 13" mid-2012 base model)
    Also, i am using FileVault2.

    No there is no ned to wait any longer.  The download apparently was not successful and the reason you are receiving this error is because it is incomplete.  You can either cancel the download and try again or initiate a direct download by following the steps listed at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/981369.

  • Photoshop cs6 and macbook pro.

    do you need a dedicated graphics card to run this or can it run smoothly on computers with a shared with the memory (macbook pro 15-inch vs macbook pro 13-inch)?
    thanks.

    thanks for the reply. however, the SSD gave me pause...
    instead of the 13-inch MBP, should I rather get the 13-inch MBA?
    The reason I am not considering the MBA is because of the small capacity (yes, i find the 256GB small and I don't want to do a DIY to replace the SSD in it).
    right now, i am using my old MBP with a firewire 800 external hdd as my scratch space. i would have liked to get the MBA to expand my capacity but i feel USB 2 is not fast enough and the mini-display port peripherals are not yet common and still very expensive...
    thanks again for the reply.

  • Installing CS6 on macbook pro - have disks, no disk drive on computer

    I just purchased a macbook pro and it doesn't have a disk drive. I need to install CS6 and have the disk and serial #, any suggestions? Can I download CS6 directly from Adobe website?

    Yes, you can download the trial version and use your serial number to activate it.  Go to the Products section of the Adobe site and find whichever CS6 software you purchased and go to its web page.  On that page you should find a "Try" link to the right.

  • Does anyone know how to select multiple files in photoshop cs6 on macbook pro lion

    I'm new to Mac operating system. Can anyone tell me how to select multiple images in cs6 photoshop? Without having to hold down a shift or cmd key and clicking on each one.

    I assume you are using the Shape tool to draw your hexagons. After you drag out the shape, use the Transform controls to tweak the size, so that the width is evenly divisible by 4, and the height is an even number. If you wand a gap between shapes, include that in your adjustments. Make a note of the new width and height.
    Once the scaling is committed and the shape is selected, Control+Alt+T to Free Transform Copy, and in the Option Bar, set the X and Y to Relative. Set X to zero, and Y to the height you set earlier, and commit the Transform. Then Repeatedly press Shift+Control+Alt+T to make more transformed copies.
    With a vertical column of shapes, Alt-Click on the Shape Path in the Paths panel to select the whole path. Control+Alt+T again. This time, again using relative, set X to three-quarters of the width you noted earlier, and Y to one-half the height, and commit
    Finally, again Alt-click on the Shape Path in the Paths panel, and Transform Copy relative with X = one and a half times the width you noted, and Y to zero. After committing this, Shift+Control+Alt+T as above to extend more columns.
    And JJ, those are Octagons .

    Hi s.cheslik,
    It seems your MacBook Pro will not boot properly and it displaying an error message. Based on the information you have provided, it appears your MacBook Pro needs to be serviced.

    I am trying to re-install Photoshop CS6. The files have downloaded but I get and error message that the Adobe Support Advisor is required to determine what the installation probIem is. I click on the link that says "get the Support Advisor here only to be told the Support Advisor no longer exists!! A blind loop. I need to have Photoshop CS6 installed...what do I do from here??

    The CC Cleaner Tool assumes the Akamai Download Manager is activated and it has not. It seems to be the missing file that triggers the error message. \in a previous re-install I was prompted to download & install the Akamai Download Manger, but not this time. Is there somewhere on the Adobe website that I can download it??

  • Photoshop CS6 - failure to open after 2 year's use  due to adobe message.

    An Adobe message to confirm a trial of PS CS6 Extended has suddenly appeared to prevent me from continuing to open my photoshop application ( non extended) which has run OK for two years.  No other options are given.   How can I get rid of this message to enable me to use application?  Adobe Chat suggested deleting some adobe files but this did not work and then they suddenly discovered that CS6 was no longer supported on Adobe chat!   Can you help me?!

    Help gives merely version 13.0 x64  (windows)  But I have found a solution & I think the following gives the sequence:
    message first appeared after my computer's card reader stopped working pro tem, so I downloaded the card from the camera via USB using Bridge CS6 downloader, something I have not had to do before  (ie from the camera).   The message above gave only one option, but of course, CS6 extended or otherwise is not now available from Adobe anyway.  By attempting to open Photoshop CS6 offline the message option to license the product now appeared as well with requirement also to sign in my Adobe ID.   By entering the licence serial number again of my unextended product (although it was already recorded as licensed on my account) and my adobe ID I was then immediately able to open Photoshop.  Possibly some piece of software recognised an unusual procedure  (piracy prevention)?  Anyway it now seems to work perfectly again.
    Many thanks JJM for your interest and I hope this account may also be of use to someone else out there!

  • PHOTOSHOP CS6 PLUGIN PROBLEM; I have PS CS6

    PHOTOSHOP CS6 PLUGIN PROBLEM; I have PS CS6 & a mac osx 10.7.5  I have downloaded the pluginhttps://sourceforge.net/projects/panotools/  I drag it to the applications folder  (applications/photoshop/plugins) and it shows up there, but it does not show up when I reopen photoshop, can anyone tell me if this is a valid plugin or what I am doing wrong?

    Thank you for the link, I don't see where the licensing is listed at all, I also don't see where it says it is for existing CS2 users only & the line install a special version that does not require activation -                                   
    doesn't scream it'd be a problem to load it especially since I already own a later version that I can't use the plugin on - …I don't find the site all that informative.  I appreciate all the answers & responses to my use of CS2 but I'd really just like to receive an answer to the original question of if the plugin works with it or not…if anyone has that answer I'd appreciate it.
    Is there a place I can purchase it?  I will gladly do so if I can get the plugin to work-that is my goal.

  • I'm having problems (1)selecting onscreen text, (2) having problems resizing menu boxes and selecting menues with the cursor. I'm not able to select menus and move them. I'm not sure how to correct this.

    I'm having problems (1) selecting onscreen text, (2) resizing menu boxes and selecting menues with the cursor. I'm not able to select menus and move them. I'm not sure how to correct this.

    1) This is because of software version 1.1. See this
    thread for some options as to how to go back to 1.0,
    which will correct the problem...

    2) This tends to happen after videos. Give the iPod a
    minute or two to readjust. It should now be more
    accurate.
    3) This?
    iPod shows a folder icon with exclamation
    point
    4) Restore the iPod
    5) Try these...

    I think 3,4, and 5 are related. Try the options I
    posted for each one.

    I just noticed that one of the restore methods you posted was to put it into Disk Mode First rather than just use the resstore straight off, I Have tried that and seems to have solved the problem, If it has thank you. previously I have only tried just restoring it skipping this extra step. Hope my iPod stays healthy, if it doesnt its a warrenty job me thinks any way thanks again
