FMP 12 (from 8.5)... Nav. panel -- WTF?

Just bought a copy of latest Filemaker Pro. Previously using v8.5, easily converted existing files.

 

BUT: How on earth to I get back the vertical navigation panel on the left?

 

FMP 12 seems to want to use this clodding great tool bar full wasted space right where I don't want it -- ie, at the top of the screen. We seem mostly to be using 'wide' screens now, so vertical space is at a premium, and all my previous files' layouts were sized to fit a given amount of data in the available real estate at a given window size. In the default state, that's all screwed.

 

I just cannot find the preference setting to restore the familiar panel -- nothing about it in the Help either, and it's driving me berserk. It actually feels a bit like a mid-90s version of Word, which is no compliment.

 

Sorry to seem stupid, but can someone tell me the secret?

 

Thanks in advance;

 

Mark
