I use ArchLinux, I use LibreOffice Still, but, I test with LibreOffice 6.4.2 appImage, and yes, I can't see this options. I have found in advance options, but, not work too.

yeah, it does not work even through the property is set to true. I don't if this isn't related to this change: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/s... It seems they remove that option on purpose ... I still would like to have them though.

Hello
1) By default, LibreOffice 6.4 launches with the gtk3 GUI indicated in Help → About LibreOffice: VCL: gtk3
This is like launching LibreOffice from the console with:
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN = gtk3 soffice
The icons do not appear in the menus.
And the Visibility → Icons option in the menu bar does not appear.

2)LibreOffice6.4 gen:
LibreOffice 6.4 launches with the generic GUI in the console:
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN = gen soffice
It is then indicated in Help → About LibreOffice: VCL: x11
The icons are displayed.
And the Visibility option → The icons of the menu bar appear.
But the window is not very aesthetic.

3)LibreOffice6.4 qt5: (You must install the libreoffice-qt5 package)
LibreOffice 6.4 launches with the qt5 GUI in the console:
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN = qt5 soffice
It is then indicated in Help → About LibreOffice: VCL: qt5
Icons appear
