merge compare mouse over hides profile info under, outside window

Hello, Thank you for all your work making wikitree easier to use.

Can you please change the mouse over to preview toward the center and on top of the other windows?

So if mousing over on left side of the screen, the preview pane is to the right, and if the mouse over is on the right side... the preview is on the left.

My struggle is the merge profile compare window only lists names, not ID's, so if I have children from both proposed merges with John Smith as a child, I have no idea if they are the same unless I mouse over to compare, and the details are hidden off screen, or under the otherside compare...

I am looking at the compare side by side for merges, and the mouse over for the children, parents... it defaults to left side, and the left compare puts the mouse over profile preview, birth, parents... outside the edge of my display mostly (Windows, chrome), sometimes it flips to right side and I can see the info.

With the right profile, it hides half the preview under the left side profile..

Thank you

The problem happens for me when I am using half of my browser window.  Widen the browser window when you are doing a compare.
Thank you Linda,

I am using the full display, 1600 x 900 when this happens?

For me, after i select to compare the two profiles for the proposed merge, normally left half one profile, right side the other profile,

Still not sure why the mouse over goes under one window, or off the screen rather than in the viewable space.

programming is complicated...

And users find odd ways of er mixing things up...

Stay safe,

It already does that.  So, for instance, if you have "John Smith", and most of his profile details are hidden if you click to the right, then click to the left instead and they will centre.

Say, if you click to the left and most of his preview details are hidden, then click to the right and you will see them.

Thank you, 

Sorry, I am still confused, 
I am speaking about the mouse over preview, not clicking on the name text.
When I am in the merge compare side by side screen, if I click on any profile, it exits the side by side merge screen and switches to the regular one profile full screen.
I just want the little preview pane, to be on top and towards the center, not default under the left side.
Maybe I am not explaining this well.
Do you see the preview pane disappear under the left, or outside the screen?
Thank you,
Thank you,

I do see it sometimes switches if I hover over the right or left side of the name,

Still not sure why it goes left off the screen, or under the left pane on the side by side compare.

Why off the screen at all?

Why under the other pane and not on top?

Stay safe.
