Show My Photos panel and the Info panel simultaneously

I would greatly prefer if the "My Photos" panel would operate independently from the "Info" panel.  When I click on "Info", it opens a new panel, but causes "My Photos" (the library icon) to close.  I would like the ability to have both of these open simultaneously.  It causes me a tremendous amount of back and forth clicking being only able to have one or the other.

Preferences>Interface Tab> Change the "Panel Tracks" setting to "Manual", which allows you to control the panels manually, and thus independently.

Thank you!  This was really aggravating.

With the new update I'm no longer able to keep my Photos (left-hand) and Edit (right-hand) pane open at the same time. (When I open one, the other closes.) This is a bummer as I generally like to work with both open, editing photos across many albums! Was this intentional? If so, why?
