Hi Pawel,

If you want to move a selection, simply click on it and drag.  No Space Bar required.  Same on both Win and Mac.

Spacebar should work to position the selection/item during creation when the mouse is still down. Sounds like it's related to the spacebar not working in general for you in this topic:
