Menu Bar Not Showing

As you can see in the picture the menu bar and icons are not showing. I can't do anything. I have the latest version 3.27.1. So do I need to remove the current installation and reinstall?

Yep forgot to add the image.

That's bizarre, I thought calibre mandated that Preferences be clickable - i.e. it must be in a toolbar or menu,

Type Ctrl+P to get to Preferences, check The Main Toolbar and The Main Toolbar when a device is connected in Toolbars and menus.

Okay I can see both and they have icons in the right hand box but I don't know what I should click.

And for me (3.27.1) it still does, mores the pity

My main toolbar is empty and my menu bar has the Preferences item in it, if I remove it I get:

What you you see in the book list context (right click) menu?

If you have a device attached try disconnecting it.

If that doesn't work you could try uninstalling calibre and reinstalling it - you shouldn't lose any settings or libraries - but I don't see why that should fix it.

FYI - defaults for Main toolbar and Main toolbar when device attached

Yes I have those and some others that I added. But that does not change or fix the problem that I cannot see a single icon. It is like something is hiding them and there is no another window open covering up the icons/menu bar.

Do you use any of the optional "themes", if so try reverting to the default in Look and Feel.

I'm not sure how the icon themes work - you could try this

with calibre not running
  • backup the configuration folder, simplest way is to zip it up in place
  • remove the ...\resources\images folder from the configuration folder
start calibre

If it works you'll hopefully have the default theme, otherwise restore the backup you just took and wait for a conformist** to respond, I'm out of ideas for now.

BR

** conformist is an antonym of an iconoclast.

That doesn't look like a calibre issue. It looks like something is drawing a blank rectangle on top of calibre. WHat operating system is this?

OK well start by running calibre without plugins from a command prompt as

calibre --ignore-plugins


The reason I say it looks like something drawing a blank rectangle over calibre is that in your screenshot the blank rectangle is cutting off half the search bar.
