The Soft Proofing button doesn't show up in my Lightroom 5 Develop module tool bar. I looked for it elsewhere as well, in Preferences, etc., but could not find a way to it.

Joanne,

Go to the right end of the Develop Toolbar, click on the little downward pointing triangle and choose "Soft Proofng" to appear in the toolbar.

Thanks Richard. Maybe it's just me but there's no little downward pointing triangle in the Develop Toolbar that has Soft Proofing in it. Here's an attached screen shot.

You have hidden the Develop Toolbar. Press [ T ] (for toolbar) to restore it.

Thanks Rikk, I just did that, clicked on the triangle on the right hand side...and it's still not one of the options presented. Screen shot attached.

Your screenshot is of the Library module, go to Develop. Soft Proofing lives there.
You can also access Soft Proofing with the Shortcut Key [ S ]
