Spacebar Panning with Freehand Selection

Recommended Posts

According to this entry from way back being able to use the spacebar to pan the image while making a freehand selection was broken but fixed.  However it isn't working for me.  Should it be?

We have two more systems with this problem (total of 4).  The two mentioned above are desksides, this report has one deskside and one laptop. Specifications are the same for both:
Windows 10 Pro, 21H1, 19043.1766.

On one deskside I replaced the wireless keyboard/mouse combination with wired versions, the failure continued. Anything else I should try?
