Disabling Spacebar

Hello. I know I am not the only one that has the annoying problem with hitting the spacebar accentually while performing a very delicate proceeder in 3ds max. I have never found a any use for locking anything down in Max.
Touching the spacebar creates many problems as one has not clue what's going on and I often end up make unnecessary undos only to find the spacebar had locked some part of the object I was working on. I do not have big hands.

I have looked everywhere to find a way of disabling the spacebar without having to go into the register and totally disabling it. There is no mention of the spacebar hotkey in the Customize user interface. I imagine it might be possable to make a script that can do this job. But I got no time or way to learn Max script.

this is completely false. either you havn't tried it or you don't know how. go to customize - customize user interface - keyboard tab - click in the hotkey box and press the spacebar. you can reassign it. or alternatively remove it from the default action of "selection lock toggle"

Ok I tried to follow you instructions but after I press the space bar the word "Space" appears in the hotkey box, Below that the label Assign to selection toggle. but the Assign and Remove buttons are greyed out

You have to select the assigned function ("Selection Lock Toggle") in the listbox to the left. After that you can remove the shortcut or assign a different shortcut to it ...
