I am using QGIS 3.8.3.

I'm looking for the Gdal tools "miscellaneous" under the raster menu. It does not appear, nor can I find where to install it in the plugins.

Specifically I am looking for the merge tool within miscellaneous.

Screenshot below. Any help?

  • Thats strange, I am not having that issue. Have you tried searching for it form the search bar at the bottom of the screen? Nov 9, 2019 at 1:48
  • By the look of menu bar in your screenshot, which lacks Processing between Mesh and Help, your Processing in the Plugins Manager is likely unticked. Many ex-GDAL Tools belong to Processing Toolbox now.

I am just guessing, but you may find your Processing tool in the Plugins Manager window (from Menu > Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins) without a tick (like below):

Then the menu will not show Processing menu in between Mesh and Help, and at the same time you miss lots of GDAL tools under the Raster menu.

Then please click on the tick box of the Processing.

You will be able to recover Raster processing tools.
