Photoshop allows for customization to control what tools are visible in the toolbar. These toolbar customization settings are saved with your preferences and can also be saved as part of a workspace.
You may observe this issue in the following scenarios:
- After updating to a new version of Photoshop and the setting saved with your preferences or workspace, the toolbar doesn't include newer tools such as the Frame tool or the Object Selection tool.
- After switching to another workspace (one of the workspaces found under Window > Workspace)
- Choose Edit >Toolbar.
- In the Customize Toolbar dialog, if you see your missing tool in the Extra Tools list in the right column, drag it to the Toolbar list on the left.
- Click Done.
