Latest Avant Browser, Side Bar does not appear

Post by AvantLover » Sun Nov 04, 2012 3:13 am

On the left side of Avant, I normally can get bookmarks, etc to show up.
Using the latest version of Avant Browser, there is nothing showing up, and clicking/unclicking the Side bar reference in the Avant options does nothing.

How do I get my side bar back again?

Default rendering engine is ID9 Standards.

Thank you.

Maybe you've already tried this, but what happens when you click Bookmarks in the Tools menu?

I think mbrazil refers to View>Bookmarks

Clicking the sidebar button on status bar doesn't work either?

Clicking on View > Bookmarks brings up the bookmarks.

However, I normally was able to click on the arrow on the left side of the screen to open/close the bookmarks.

I do not see this arrow.

Make sure Tools -> Avant Browser Options -> Miscellaneous -> Hide splitter bar when the sidebar is closed, is not selected

As mentioned previously, it does not matter if the sidebar is checked or not.

Using build 188, and previous builds, I no longer find the black arrow which expands/contracts the side bar.

I can manually open the side bar using the previously mentioned methods.

I did not use those methods because I could open/close the sidebar with just the click of the mouse on the black arrow, which appeared on the right hand side of the side bar.

Where is this black arrow?

Since the setting doesn't work, try to create a new Avant profiles and see whether it works:
1Tools>avant browser options>profiles>Please choose the profile folder> copy the path in the text filed.
2 Close Avant, and go to that path, find Avant profiles folder
3 Rename the Avant profiles folder
4 restart Avant.

BTW, how about using the sidebar icon on status bar?

I have to use the side bar by the two methods; unfortunately, unable to use the old method of clicking on the black arrow.

I tried the profile adjustment, still no change.

Uninstalled Avant Browser, made sure any registry entries were removed, reinstalled, and still no black arrow appears for the sidebar.

Has the black arrow been removed? This has been a staple for many years, and I really enjoyed that feature!!

I have not tried using the older versions.
I can say that this happens on multiple computers running Windows 7 64 bit.

2012 build 178 and 2012 build 189 exhibit this.

Gosh, I don't ever even remember a black arrow on the right side to open the side bar. I have the splitter bar hidden and just use the green arrow on the left or click on the history button and then click the bookmark tab.

I think he's talking about the arrows on the splitter bar itself. If you don't have the splitter bar hidden when closed, there will be two ghosted arrows on the split-bar. When you mouse-over they turn to black, and when clicked on opens the side window.

Yes, that's the "black arrow" I was talking about.
