just make sure show sidebar was selected under window menu.
I have been selecting this under the window menu. I think I discovered what the issue is. In 7 it was called "data window" for worksheets and "dashboard window" for dashboards. In 8 BOTH have been mapped to a common parameter called "Side Bar" so when you deselect it for dashboard view you are globally changing it for all. Typically I like to work with my dashboards without the window but always have the window on when in worksheets. I'm not sure I like this change and if there are any offsetting benefits for having it.
