Colored sidebar icons

I upgraded to Pathfinder 11 and can't see how to get my old coloured sidebar icons back.

I used to be able to do it by creating a new sidebar, but that cog no longer is there.

What is the process for getting the old coloured sidebar in 11?

    I sincerely apologise for such delayed response, I was browsing through old issues and only now this has come to my intention. Sorry about that…

    Go to sidebar settings (click the action icon in the left corner of the sidebar module header) and check Use color icons (see attached picture).

    Thanks for your understanding, support and patience.

    Hi Dragan.

    Is that there in the current version? I asked for and received a refund because I could not function without the coloured sidebar and am thus using my old version 10 license. But the nag screen is annoying, so if I know for sure I can make them look like I want, I’ll strongly consider resubscribing.

    I’ll attach a screenshot of what my version 10 sidebar looks like and what I want in version 11.

    Yes, it's been there ever since version 8 :-)
