Keep right side transaction bar open?

When I'm scrolling through downloaded transactions having the right side bar open and close based on if a transaction has been accepted is visually jarring and makes it hard to track what I'm doing. Would it be possible to keep this right bar open all the time and just leave it empty when there isn't information to display? That would make quick keyboard navigation in the UI much easier and faster.

I'm currently running 2022.3 (4063)

    There's no way to have that sidebar appear while blank. Some other potential options:

    In the General tab of the Preferences window, try changing the Show Selection Details option to in a separate popup. This will show unconfirmed transaction details in a popup instead of a sidebar, which some people find less jarring.

    Change the display of your register to separate out only unconfirmed transactions, at least while confirming them. You can either click on the Unconfirmed filter at the top of the register, or toggle the split register view by clicking on the 'box' icon just to the right of the New Transaction button, which will move unconfirmed transactions to a separate register window under your main one.

    I tried the popup mode but that steals focus on OSX, so as soon as I arrow down to an unconfirmed TX I can no longer use the arrow keys without going back to the mouse.

    I prefer the single-register view as I can use the arrow keys to quickly navigate transactions as I'm reconciling against a monthly statement. I'll just deal with the right-bar behavior, but if you're taking feature requests having it's frame be "always visible" would make fast keyboard navigation of the UI nice and visually stable.
