Photoshop: Please Create A Way To Turn Off The Spacebar Key For Timeline Playback

Dear Abby,

Pressing the spacebar while creating frame animations in Photoshop causes the animation to start playing. The spacebar is one of the most frequently used keys in Photoshop for navigation purposes so having it also perform this other function is annoying as balls. Can we please get a way to change that function or disable it altogether? And yes I already know you can go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts>Panel Menus to adjust the timeline hotkeys, but this one in particular isn't there.

We had been facing this issuse since years. Check this page-
Just wondering how many decades more will it take for the fix. Its really ridiculous ....its a problem with your design and Adobe team really dosent seem to care. I dont need the problem fixed anymore...Coz i switched to blender....I just came to check if Adobe team still sucks the same till date.... Im happy to use blender coz I can chat with the blender developers live every few months and they respond with very quick updates too. Adobe on other hand just cares abt making money.
