To toggles between the Effects and Properties sidebar you can click on the words at the bottom of the panel or from the View Menu.

To hide or un-hide the side bar you now have to go to the "View" menu and the click on Side Bar

IMO it was a ridiculous change from what it was before.

And they didn't even a least offer a shortcut.

I am also part of half the group of users who liked the ability to toggle the Side Bar on and off. I recognize others would prefer to turn it off via the View menu. I am a frequent used of that feature and it is very inconvenient to go to the View menu to turn it off. I have a solution which should satisfy both groups of users.

Keep the way it it working now and also add back the toggling feature. That way both groups would be satisfied. And optionally you could change the Properties button to say: "Properties On" and "Properties Off."

I also agree with Jeff and other users; having to click "Sidebar" to hide the sidebar is counter-productive and unnecessary.

Please fix this Techsmith. The previous version worked fine.
