    My space bar has broke and to get a space I'm using the Keyboard Viewer, but is there any way I can make another button on my keyboard make a space?

    Thanks,

    Perhaps you could consider getting a new keyboard? You can't make another key be a space.

    Keyboards are $10. Go grab one.

    Download Ukelele, a keyboard layout editor for OS X.

    Create a new keyboard layout based on your keyboard language. You should then be able to arbitrarily assign keys. Once you create your 'custom' layout, you can select it in the international panel in sys prefs.

    Note... this should not be used for such things as switching the 'a' and 's' keys on unsuspecting user keyboards.

    Another option is to use something like TextExpander.

    According to your sig, you aren't on a laptop, so you could always buy a cheep low-price keyboard, or spend the $50 and buy the Apple Aluminum Keyboard. But I can not think of any other easy ways to fix it/replace it yourself.
