For some reason the digitizing toolbar is gone in QGIS even though I checked the box: enter image description here

Do you have experience with this and know how to get the toolbar back?

EDIT: When making it as small as possible it still doesnt pop up and it is also not in the dropdown in the red circle:enter image description here

    Have you tried to remove (untick) it, close QGIS, then add it back?

I have had issues with disappearing panels (dataPlotly specifically). When that happens I have to go into the Interface Customization settings and reset it. Try playing around in there to see if it brings the toolbar back. I'm using 3.18.
