Hi Vinay,

Actually that's a bug as you can see here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-24881
There's a workaround, which is to manually drag the Sidebar back to its visible position.

I think this should do the work.



Is there anyone assigned to this yet?

We have to hit the "windows" button on our keyboards to toggle it open. We do not see the sidebar to drag it out. We use IE9.

This has to be one of the strangest bugs.
