Blender Manipulator Gone

Blender suddenly Manipulator is missing fix

And as I’m about 3 hours deep into making a nice looking cupcake in Blender, I suddenly noticed the Manipulator was gone – you know, those three colored arrows that you allow you to move your object or selected material to move along the X, Y, Z axis.

Well, solving the problem was luckily simple: I pressed the space bar on the keyboard and… voilĂ . It was back.
