Is your intent manager switched on ??? At the top of yourscreen there is a drop down list titled Sketch. Click on this and on the menu ( at the top ) is Intent manager.. this should have a small tick next to it. if i doesnt click on it and the tick will appear, and so should all of your sketcher icons.

Hope this helps!
