Is there a Lenovo or Windows 10 specific thing that disables left-click while the spacebar is held down, or that might be swallowing that particular key combo? Any ideas about how to track down the culprit?
Setting it to "min" did allow me to spacebar-left-click using the touchpad, *sometimes* in *some* of the applications, but not reliably. (And touchpad clicking on these machines is pretty useless anyway.) But the physical left button remains nonfunctional with spacebar.
I barely use the touchpad in any case - I buy Thinkpads for the stick. But even disabling the touchpad didn't restore the functionality in question. Has anyone used Maya/Houdini/Photoshop successfully with either the Carbon or Yoga? (Or unsuccessfully? At least that would confirm the issue.)
After a whole day of searching & trying stuff, I think I've nailed it. Windows 10 has a setting called "touchpad sensitivity" that supposedly rejects momentary touchpad contact from registering as tap-clicks. For whatever reason, the result on my machine was that the left mouse button was disabled whenever *any* character key (so everything but ctrl, alt, etc.) was held down. Maybe something to do with the interaction of windows and the Synaptics driver, which has its own palm-rejection voodoo. Who knows.
Anyway, turning Touchpad Sensitivity to "most sensitive" re-enabled the left mouse button. For good measure, I also disabled touchpad tap-clicking altogether, since I have physical buttons on my laptop and don't need to tap-click. For the benefit of the next incredibly frustrated person, here's where to find it - it's at the bottom:
