Can I put an account back on the left sidebar if I removed it?

I have some old accounts; probably I should mark them 'inactive' but I have not. They no longer appear on the sidebar on the left side of the main display in MoneyDance, which is how I want it.

However, I was wondering whether there was a way to put an account BACK on the sidebar once I've removed it. I don't see a way to do that.

To remove one, I evidently (it's been long enough I don't remember) right-clicked on the individual account name on the left sidebar, and one of the options is "Remove From Side Bar".

But of course I can't right-click on one that has been removed. I thought there might be some kind of option on the screen when I edit the account, but I haven't found one. There is a check box for "Hide on summary page (if balance is zero), but that seems to refer to the summary page, not the sidebar; none of the accounts I've removed from the sidebar have that checked. There's another option for "inactive" which I think I'll start using soon, but haven't done that yet either.

So does anyone know if there's a checkbox somewhere that controls whether an account appears on the left side bar in the main window?

    The plus sign ("+") at the bottom left of the overall window allows you to replace accounts on the sidebar.

    I think it would be better if that were visually associated a bit more closely with the side bar items, instead of appearing below a line that looks like it separates the main window from some kind of footer. However, now I know how to do it. The forum's automated "read this article" led me to the right place.
