With Float Quick Reference Panels active:

In Composition mode (on the primary monitor) with a Quick Reference window open on a second monitor, if I switch apps – say to the macOS dictionary – with Cmd+Tab then switch back to Scrivener, then the Quick Reference window jumps to the primary monitor.

(Oddly, if I do the same, but with Scrivener open on the second monitor and the Quick Reference window on the primary monitor, then do as above, the Quick Reference window remains in place.)

The problem does not occur with Float Quick Reference Panels off.

I don't think there's any way to avoid this, I'm afraid. "Float" is an Apple window setting, so nothing in Scrivener is controlling this.

No problem. It's hardly a deal-breaker. Thought I'd report it, since I found it.
