Manual screen settings disappeared on T4i?

Hello! I have a T4i that I bought used about a month ago and have been using since then on manual mode; however, I've gotten used to having the settings shown on the bottom of my screen while shooting. Touch shutter, aperature, ISO, shutter speed and a few other settings were constantly displayed on the bottom of the screen and could be easily adjusted. All of a sudden, though, the settings have disappeared from the bottom of the screen while shooting. The settings show up again if I click the aperature or ISO buttons, but they are only there for a couple of seconds before going away again. I've gone through all of the menu options and have not found a solution, is there something I'm missing? Does anyone know how I could fix this? If so, thank you very much! I appreciate any help I can get!

Try pressing the INFO button on the upper left of the camera.  Keep pressing it until you get the desired display.  Once it's there, the camera will remember it until you press the INFO button again.

I just saw a film rebel in a thrift store. No buttons on the back to accidentally push...

The designed it that way so that you can have one free hand to scratch your head.
