So, I have two external screens hooked up to my MBP.

I like to run Calendar on the left hand one. What I'm finding is that when I hit "get info" or double click an event, it open the little Get Info box on the main laptop screen, often behind things I'm already working on. Is there a way to make it open the box on the screen that Calendar is on already? TBH, I hate the little free-floating popover box. Didn't it used to be in a sidebar or something?

When the box pops open, try scooting it over to the Calendar screen. It may remember its location and default there next time.

And maybe not. Worth a try, tho.

This is a very frustrating point for me too.

I haven't bothered really working through it because most times I end up working with the popup window since I know where it will land.

I will add that I use Calendar full screen and my Get Info window always ends up on the upper left corner of monitor 1. Normally it's behind something else... but it's there.
