Quick Access Panel [solved]

I have used Darktable for several years for my own photos. I had recently downloaded 4.0.0 from 3.4.1 which I used for several weeks. I wanted to add modules but did not see how. I have no idea what mistake I made, but as if by magic the Quick Access Panel disappeared. I have searched on Darkroom and can not figure out how to get it back. I searched the web and found no help. I reloaded 4.0.0 and the Quick Access Panel is still gone. How do I get the Quick Access Panel back?

Hi @Sandias, and welcome,

Have you checked the manual?
What happens if you click on the far left icon below the histogram?

I have searched the manual and found no way I could retrieve the Quick Access Panel. The entire right panel is gone so there is no histogram or icon.

Thanks for your suggestions.


OK, then we have to dive a trifle deeper into this.

a) Operating system?
b) From where did you obtain darktable?
c) What happens if you (in darkroom) click

ctrl Shift r

MacOS Monterey Version 12.5. The 4.0 Darktable came from their web site. HOWEVER, the ctrl Shift r when in Darkroom solved the problem. I know some shortcuts, but I’ve never used this one. It apparently un-did the mistake I made in Darkroom.

Great help that solved what I struggled with yesterday afternoon. Appreciate you help.


Good you got it solved!

Have fun!

Glad your problem is solved. BTW, you can manage presets for the modules and customise it to your heart’s content. There is a checkbox for show quick access panel there.
