Spacebar not working

Spacebar not working

Spacebar not woring when I try and comment on files- spacebar works everywhere else - tried dropbox in both Safari and Chrome same result 

Operating System  Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6  Dropbox plus 

Worked perfectly last night - not working this morning 

Seems spacebar now working to pause video playback - ie when watching a video I want to comment on - when I press space bar the video stops instead of giving me a space in the comments section 

Doesn't happen when using phone app - just on desktop

Confirming the same thing! I just shot 150 videos to send to my students and they can't reply back without it looking like one giant cluster of words. 

 

Please help Dropbox!

Hi Andy,

 

My name is Frank and I’m a member of the Dropbox specialist team. I've tried to reproduce the problem you described in both Chrome and Safari (Operating System: Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6), and wasn't able to reproduce the problem in either browser. Hitting spacebar in the comment field while a video was playing worked correctly for me, in that the video continued to play and a 'space' character was added to the comment text.

 

Can you try reproducing the issue again and let me know if you are still affected? If you are still able to reproduce this behaviour, can you open a support ticket so we can look into this further? 

 

Thank you!

Frank

Same problem here. UsingSafari onElCapitan here.See? It doesn't happen every time but it's annoying and very time-consuming...
