Enable toggling side panel while using any component's dialog


Community Advisor


Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Enable toggling side panel while using any component's dialog. In general, whenever a author tries to author and image or drag any asset on to the component, the author might require the side panel to be toggled on before even opening the dialog.

So how about we provide the ease of accessing side panel while editing the page even when the author opened the dialog box.
Current/Experienced Behavior: Author is not able to open side panel when component's dialog is opened.
Improved/Expected Behavior: Author should be able to open/toggle side panel when component's dialog is opened in order to drag any asset.
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable): All versions
Customer-name/Organization name:  
Screenshot (if applicable):  
Code package (if applicable):  


I saw a few solutions to make this possible with some custom JS but I believe it would be better if we could keep this out of the box to have a proper user experience while authoring/editing a page or template.

I agree. It's a pain for the authors if they haven't already opened the side rail while opening the component dialog.

Hi Arun,

I believe that I read your article a long time back, nice one. I am expecting more of an in-house solution from Adobe team so as to provide a more user-friendly experience for our clients/authors.
