This has been around for a while now. The following two threads are just examples; https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/side-bar-the-change-makes-it-inconvenient-to-use or https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/i-dont-understand-the-logic-to-this. Version 13.1.7 was the last that allowed toggling of 'Effects' and 'Properties.' I still have it installed on another device.

It's stuff like this that causes us to look for a replacement. It sounds like it would be an easy fix. Create an option to either toggle or not toggle 'Effects' and 'Properties'. I am hopeful they can make this change.

There is an explanation from an employee in this thread https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/i-cant-really-hide-effects-properties-side-bar
that gives a reason for the change but it never washed with me. It didn't take me very long to figure out that after hiding the sidebar by clicking on the 'Properties' or 'Effects' labels, I just did it again to bring it back.
