Hello marcosgdf,

Thank you for submitting the bug. I can confirm this issue happens in 4.1.6 and master and it has been around since the 4.1.x releases. When the drawing toolbar is shown, it is automatically hides the vertical text and vertical callouts buttons, which causes this behaviour. I'm not sure if its possible to hide buttons from the toolbar before the toolbar is visible, but will await feedback from the development team to know if this is fixable.

This hiding of buttons also happens when you right-click and customize the toolbar by adding or removing entries in the 'Visible Buttons' submenu.
