flat view icon missing

doug_hillsdoug_hills Member Posts: 26
hi, I'm working on the sheet metal course. 
on My screen the "sheet metal table and flat view icon" does not appear on the right side of the screen. 

How do I make it appear, so I can see the flat view, and eventually create a drawing from it?

    Have seen this myself. Hit the refresh button of the browser and it should come back. I've seen this with other icons from time to time. Haven't made much of it since it's not a regular occurrence. Mostly using Chrome.
    If this is a frequent thing for you, then report a bug.

    I can't remember offhand, but maybe it doesn't show up at all until you have an actual sheet metal part. Will you confirm that?

    thanks everyone, it eventually just appeared. I may have refreshed the screen, or perhaps I reloaded the drawing. so must be a glitch.
