How to show the toolbar in Excalidraw

In an Excalidraw drawing, you can press ‘i’ and the toolbar disappears. But pressing ‘i’ again doesn’t bring it back. How do you get it back without restarting Obsidian?


Excalidraw has a discussions section on their GitHub you could check or post in as well.

Thanks, but this seems to be an issue specific to the Obsidian integration.

If you go to and press ‘i’, the toolbar doesn’t disappear, it starts a color picker instead.

The toolbar only disappears in Obsidian.

Check first, but I’d post a bug in their issues section. 363 open issues as of now.
