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

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

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.
