You can also have it on permanent display by going to View > Customise Toolbar and dragging the icon northwards.

Perhaps I am going blind but I do not see it? Hence, the reason for my original post.

Perhaps another Mac user will chime in to confirm or deny that it’s missing from the Mac version.

Thanks, I got it. But, this is a bug or poor UI design. There is no indication that this window is scrollable as the scroll bar is not visible - reference my screenshot above. In order to access,  you have to scroll in order to enable the scroll bar sliders. Am I missing something?

The partially displayed icons indicate the need for a scrolling.

But the scrollbar would be visible. Is not it a dark UI problem?

Here's the dark UI version of that screen on a PC (I suppose Mac could be different):

It is neither a bug nor poor UI design. It is simply that the Mac Affinity apps honor the system-wide General preference that controls when scroll bars are shown:

If you want to see them all the time, choose the "Always" setting like in the screenshot.
