Navigation Sidebar displays content cascaded

The content of the navigation sidebar is displayed cascaded. 

I am using a Windows 7, newest Chrome web browser without any plugins.

I already wiped all browser data, without any success. Also tried with Internet Explorer who displayed the side bar correctly. Colleagues of mine have no issues with the same machine set up. 


I thank you and wish a nice week!





The problem was the zoom of the site. It seems that everything else than 100% zoom destroys the sidebar navigation display.

This is a bug in my opinion.

Thanks Rob for your suggestions.

It looks like someone has changed the Sidebar navigation from Page tree to Child pages.

Where can I change this option? I looked in several menus but could not find it.

In the bottom left of the sidebar there's a Space tools option. 

Click on that and select Configure sidebar.

You'll see radio buttons marked Child pages and Page tree

If Child pages is selected change it to Page tree.

Click Done and  - hopefully - that'll solve the problem....

Side note: If you don't have the Configure sidebar option then you'll need to ask a space administrator to do this for you.
