UX improvement needed: popovers appear out of view when selecting a long chunk of music

Popovers are a grid design idea in Dorico that I really love. However there is a slight issue with the implementation -
The popover always appears on the far left side of the selected music. However - in Gallery view, if the selected chunk of music is too long to be in view the popover will not be visible in the view, which sometimes make me think that it doesn’t work.
I think that in that case it should appear in the far left side of the view, so it’s always visible.

cf. my reply to this thread last November.

As an answer to both threads, it might be preferable for the popover to have a fixed position in the window (bottom left?), then the music would not be obscured if positioned in the middle of the window, as one might normally expect.
