Question Locking handle to casement window broken; is this fixable?

Below is the photo.
To begin with, it is broken? The inner edge of the handle is so symmetrical and clean that it's hard to think it's broken off from the rest of the mechanism.
If it's broken, can it be fixed by superglue or something?
If I have to replace the entire locking mechanism, is it complicated?

Painters sometimes take them off and don't get them clipped back in properly. My guess is it will snap back in place if you can figure out how it goes back on. Open the window and look how it connects when you stick it in horizontally. It looks to me like it is an Encore lever lock.

Thanks! I looked up Encore and yes it is Encore. I was able to put the lever lock back in after watching a video on Encore locks.
