First of all IMA stands for imagine and shape and though i very rarely use imagine and shape ,from the attached image it looks like that when u will be in img.&shape and then if u press the spacebar the MODIFICATION tool will pop up.So my logic says that u better assign the space bar key shortcut after assigning the IMA modification tool with another keyboard shortcut or none at all.Try it and do tell me what's the result!!

in catia some commands has already assigned. example F3 is shortcut of specification tree for hide/show. space will be one of them. i suggest you another way. you can use only word but you must use them with altgr button. altgr deactivetes command line. example you can assign H word for hide/show. when you want to use push altgr+h. and hide show will active. and the other commands will be use with same method.

-Start Menu
-Sketch Tracer -> you have to use this module, like assembly design or part design, afther this
-Tools/Customize -> commands, select all commands, find the "IMA - View Modification" -> Show properties and you have to delet F2 from Accelerator!
-Tools/Customize -> commands, select all commands, find the "Hide/Show" -> Show properties and you have to use F2 as Accelerator!
- Thats all.
