Problem with sculpt tool icons

If I open a new file and then enter Sculpt mode, I find a full set of tool icons (see top of JPG).

But when I open my current project file, most of the tool icons are missing (see bottom of JPG).

I suppose I could temporarily append the particular objects to a new file for sculpting, but I’d rather solve the mystery of the missing icons.

Thanks for any clues.


If the original file was made with an earlier version of blender, append your scene into a new blender file and save the file. The brushes should then show up when you reopen.

Yes, indeed. That worked like a charm. I didn’t realize I could append an entire scene. Thanks again, Richard.
