The "Intelligent Scrollbar" in the Packet List pane is a useful feature. However, it seems to have disappeared lately. I'm not sure if it happened when I upgraded from 3.0.0 to 3.0.6, or if it's disappeared for some other reason. I can't see any way to make it reappear. How can it be done?

I'm now using Wireshark 3.0.7. On Windows 7 64-bit.

Does your packet list show packets with colored backgrounds?

If not, try clicking on the toolbar item that shows a bunch of differently-colored horizontal lines (it'll be to the immediate left of the toolbar item that looks like a magnifying glass with a "+" in the lens of the magnifying glass)?

There is also a preference that can disable it: gui.packet_list_show_minimap

if (!prefs.gui_packet_list_show_minimap) return;
if (!overlay.isNull() && recent.packet_list_colorize && pl_rows > 0) {
