Lightroom bug: Image Info stays on top of 'auto-hidden' panel

When ‘image info’ is displayed at the top left of an image in either the ‘Develop Module’ or ‘Loupe Module’ and the left hand ‘Panels’ are expanded from ‘Auto-Hidden’ mode, the 'image info' should move out of the way of the panel instead of covering it up.

(I get this all over all the Thumbs in Lightroom-mobile - covers all the surface of each thumb. !
I dont know yet how to deactivate that. )

@Niala, In Lr mobile, tap with two fingers to toggle the various info overlay, including turning it off.

@Frenchfries The workaround is press KBSC 'I' to turn the overlay off.

But I want the info, just not on top of the panel; over the image is better situated

What do you want in this case? The info window is positioned relative to the image loupe window. In the case of auto hide/show the panel, the underlying image loupe window does not change/resize/reposition. Would you expect Lr to hide the info window temporarily or move along the expanded left hand panel even though the underlying image loupe window remain unchanged?

I would expect that Lr would shift the info window just to the right of the panel during the time the panel has been expanded from auto-hidden mode.
I would expect it to be like in the bottom segment of this image:

Or like the top image but with the Info window to be the same as in the bottom image.
The top image is currently how the Left panel handles when expanded from auto-hidden mode and the bottom image is always-expanded.

Thank you! Two fingers on screen is indeed the procedure I did not know about! Thanks again :-)

Tap the "Lr" icon on the header, there is a menu command "Gesture Shortcuts" where it shows the common LrM gestures available to you.
