ThinkPad P50 no left click or touchpad while pressing the spacebar

Hi,

 

I'm having a problem with pressing the spacebar and leftclicking with the trackpoint or moving the cursor with the touchpad. 

I have Windows 10 and all the Drivers are up to date!

 

This shortcut is used for viewport navigation in Houdini.

 

This problem is also present in other Applications.

 

 

Any Idea how to fix ths issue?

I also noted this problem here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/P50-Trackpad-design-failings/m-p/3541363

It appears to be a design decision, but not one that I like. There should at least be an option to turn off the setting that disables the Trackpad when pressing a key--or, in other words, we should have the option to enable use of the Trackpad while simultaneously pressing a key (on the built-in keyboard).
