Category menu hides behind confirmation window

I was hoping that the new 2019 release would solve this intermittent, but ongoing, issue that I have had for several years now... but it doesn't seem to.

Often when I am going through transactions using the pop-out confirmation window the pop-up menu showing categories to choose from is hidden behind the confirmation window. It makes it very difficult, and frustrating, to get through transactions quickly. Clicking on the category window doesn't bring it to the forefront although I can select different categories and the up/down arrows do work to make selections.

I can move the confirmation window out of the way and this helps for that transaction but as soon as I go to the next one the category windows goes right back under the other window.

See screenshot.

    Hi Joe,

    Just as an FYI, there is a setting in Preferences to toggle the Confirmation side bar on and off as a separate floating window or as a fixed part of the register.

    It has been my experience that when the Confirmation side bar is set to be part of the register it tends to scrunch up the register columns. However, temporarily closing the left side bar using key-combo CTRL-SHIFT-S resolves the scrunching issue. CTRL-SHIFT-S also restores the left side bar.
