Any idea how this could have happened? I have my keyboard connected to 2 computers (via a/b switch) and occasionally type a key sequence into Blender that is meant for the other computer. I have no idea what I might have typed to remove those tabs and no clue how to get them back. I'm doing some color correction and really need my scopes back. BTW, when I open a new Blender session the tabs are missing. When I open a backup copy of my color correction, the tabs are there (but I would have to trash all my changes to get back to where I left off.)

TLDR: Scopes disappear in Edit Mode. Switch back to Object mode in 3D Viewport.

I figured it out. I looked in space_image.py and found the following code.

class ImageScopesPanel: @classmethod def poll(cls, context): sima = context.space_data if not (sima and sima.image): return False # scopes are not updated in paint modes, hide if sima.mode == 'PAINT': return False ob = context.active_object if ob and ob.mode in {'TEXTURE_PAINT', 'EDIT'}: return False return True

I could not quickly figure out the meaning of each of the variables, but decided to take a look at what could turn off the "scopes" tab. As soon as I turned the "3D View" from "Edit Mode" to "Object Mode", the "Scopes" tab re-appeared on the "UV/Image Editor".
