     One other suggestion: Tools > Options > LibreOffice > General. Look
in the Help section. Make sure that Tips and Help Agents are checked.
When they are, you can hover the cursor over an icon in a toolbar to get
a pop-up label for it.
     Another thing that may help you is the Getting Started with Base
Chapter. The top of page 20 has a screenshot and instructions on how to
open the Form properties dialog. The Navigation bar is the next to the
bottom property.

Problem sort of solved. Looking at the form carefully, I found an odd icon 
is the set of options at the bottom of the form at the end. One of these 
looked vaguely like the one on your example but slightly different. I 
clicked on it and the Table appeared on the top half!! The tool bar etc. 
don't look at at all like in your example. No "navigation" label etc. Just 
the icon preceded by filter icons. It makes as much sense as our politics, 
except that it works. By the way where are you located? I am in Cambridge, 
Massachusetts USA.

Thanks again.

So far so good. Sorry to say that I myself have only for some months
been trying to learn LibreO-Base with all its more or less hidden and
working/not working features. I am also curious to know which are the
next steps in solving your problem.
Best regards

Hi Pertti,

All that worked as you described. I found 'Navigation bar'. It was already 
marked "yes"! But no visible navigation bar with the icon on your example! 
Picking "Parent form" instead of yes made no difference. What is going on? 
Let me say again how much I appreciate the time and thought you put in 
helping me.

Hi Sylvain,
I don´t think that you are missing anything - sometimes an expert
forgets that what is obvious for him is not necessarily obvious for 
Provided that I got your problem try this:
   open your form in edit view => click empty area in the form (= set
focus on form)
   find button 'Form' (on my PC screen it is the fourth button from
up on a vertical toolbar to the left)
   that 'Form'-button opens the main form's properties
   click 'Data' tab => find 'Navigation bar'

No data tab under properties of the form under Forms after I have opened 
in edit mode! The main Table has no properties options at all. Your 
instruction are absolutely clear. I don't see what I am missing.

That picture was very helpful! However I still can't do it. I cannot get
that Form Navigation tool bar to show up, as in your picture, or that
icon to be added to any toolbar. I click on "Form Navigation" for
toolbars when in a form and the option is available, and it is checked
but nothing like the toolbar on your picture appears, nor does that icon
seem available anywhere. Puzzle!

As already mentioned, the designer of the form can disable the toolbar.
By default it is enabled. Open the form in edit mode, get the form
properties and enable the navigation bar on the "Data" tab. In my forms
the toolbar always refers to the main form since I set that property to
"Parent Form" for all subforms of the main form.
