    It's been a while since I used LibreOffice or OpenOffice but I don't remember either of them having a side panel option. Of course, it might be there and I've just missed it.

    If there isn't one, you could try posting a feature request at their website.

    well the thing is that the side pane was in evince.

    Now what i want is indexing. LibreOffice exports the document as PDF and this PDF doesnot have indexing. I want this indexing to be there.

    Have you set-up titles and bookmark information in the document?
    Have you checked bookmarks are exported ... selecting file->export as PDF should show the selected options
    You could also set the initial view to page and bookmarks rather than default which I think is page only (although you should still be able to open bookmarks in the viewer)
