    Hey Folks,

    recently this weird bug appeared:
    Sometimes the right part of the touch bar disappears (usally full screen apps) until I touch it again.
    Weird: Only the touched parts reappear.

    I attached two screenshots where this bug is shown (safari, lol). I can't really isolate the problem and reproduce it yet.

    Anyone experienced similar problems?

    Yep, I definitely get this often (the missing touch icons, not the ghost touches). For me, a tap on the fn key usually brings it all back.

    Thanks fors answering, still annyoing AF.

    Was able to narrow it down as soon as i it happend once
    1 Let the touch bar dim down and turn itself off
    2 Move Mouse -> Right side of touch bar is gone.
    3 Press FN or touch the right touch bar area to get icons back

    I believe it 'hides' itself after x amount of non input and when you touch the function key or any other key including the touch bar itself and it will then reveal the touch bar again.
