On a Mac compouter, using the spacebar to zoom 1:1 in when in Slideshow mode, it doesn't do anything, but if you than go back in Develop mode, the zoom will not work anymore. To get it working again you have to close Lightroom and open it again. Is this a normal behavior?

I am not seeing that behavior Giovanni. If I go to Slideshow and press [Space Bar] nothing happens. (This is as-designed). You will notice that Zoom disappears from the View menu if you go from Library or Develop to Slideshow. ///

If I press [ D ] to return to Develop and immediately press [Space Bar] the image zooms in to 1:1. Pressing it again, it zooms back to Fit. 

If it doesn't behave as I describe, reset your preference file.

  1. Close Lightroom.
  2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom. 
  3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
  4. Close Lightroom.
  5. Restart Lightroom.
