I think the little box that pops up when you hit the space bar is called the "Motion Manager" - right?
Usually the spacebar shortcut is for the "View Orientation", so check you keyboard shortcut under Tools > Customize > Keyboard tab.
Also check if solution by Adam works for you: https://forum.solidworks.com/message/293752#293752
(The problem was that when I hit the space bar, the Orientation window that normally comes up did not show its face. I could not get the Orientation window to open via any method - i.e. view>modify>orientation )
Not a fun one... It is a registry hack given to me by a VAR. Apparently, the dialog for orientation went missing (? - maybe due to multiple screens, on/off dock, VGA port somewhere, then Display Port elsewhere, different size and orientation of second monitor... etc) Anyway, the registry hack was to rename a key and re-launch SW. It reset ALL of my settings to default. If you have not done it recently (or ever) I HIGHLY recommend you back up your custom settings right now - it is so easy and it could potentially save you a lot of headache.
