Hi, could you elaborate?

I've just checked, it seems to work:

Yes. It works only if selected show in separated window in settings, but if selected show in another panel, QL window not open in single panel mode. I think need roll back to separated window for QL in single panel mode. Hmm, or fill all active window.

So, essentially, that would a third mode like "use an opposite panel if available, otherwise fallback to a floating window".
I think that would be even less obvious that it is now.

Frankly I don't see much of a problem here: if you want to have a floating window for QL - then just toggle this option.
NC is already complex enough to add even more UX logic.

Yes, I agree it will complicate the UX. But now it looks like a bug, the QL call hotkey simply does not work, and the user may not know that there is a mode switch in the settings. Maybe force return in dual panel mode when trigger QL? I think it's not bad compromise, because the context of the current panel is not lost, and you can quickly return to single-panel mode via hotkey.

That's actually a really good idea, I like it!
Thank you for the suggestion, I'll see if it can be implemented with a reasonable effort.
