The new Evince for 13.10 without a menu bar mostly sucks from a usability perspective, but I've gradually gotten used to it.

However, I seem to have gotten myself into a situation where even the button I normally use to bring up the menu has disappeared. I can print by pressing Ctrl-P, so not all functionality is lost, but I can't recover the menu.

This question seems to be the same, but for Lubuntu.

Note: only certain documents open in this way. For others, the toolbar is present.

  • Have you tried clicking on the gear button on the upper right? You should get the menu from there. – Zatrapilla Mar 7 '14 at 12:17

After searching for a long time I discovered that the gear is hidden if the evince window is too narrow. So widen the window to see the gear.

  • Unfortunately, I still have the problem. Sometimes the gear disappears and I can't bring it back. Can still print with Ctrl-P, but it's otherwise a pain. True also with Ubuntu 14.04. – Roly May 25 '14 at 13:15
