RC6

RC6 seems to have broken Quick Ref windows ability to not be on top when Composition Mode is invoked.

Steps to reproduce
Disable Float Window / Disable Float Quick Ref panel
Maximize Scrivener main window.
Open a doc in maximized Quick Ref panel.
Invoke Composition Mode in doc from main window
Instead of seeing the doc in Composition Mode, Scriv switches to the Quick Ref panel
Cannot Alt-Tab to the Composition Mode screen.
The only way to view Composition Mode screen is to minimize the Quick Ref panel.

Please let me know if you need any other info from me.

Best,
Jim

This is still an issue with RC7. Quick Ref panels do not respect an unchecked 'Float Quick Ref panels' setting, when in Composition mode.

This is still an issue with RC8. Quick Ref panels do not respect an unchecked 'Float Quick Ref panels' setting, when in Composition mode.

Here is a screenshot of a Quick Ref panel not respecting the Float setting.
