Thanks @Mohammad for this very valuable set of tools.

That is because of settings in tabs macro to not overflow to the right!
If you watch ref popup on its own tiddler or if you close the sidebar it will be displayed correctly.
Refnotes handles popup for small screens, but further control needs JS.

There are some discussions in forum and GitHub improving the popup functionality in TW, but with no success.

In 1.8.1 Refnotes is more powerful than ever. It can be used as Reference manager for Tiddlywiki and opens a new window for simple and quick academic citation/bibliography for online webpages (e.g. online TW).

Thank you for all those who helped to create Refnotes.

The Reference manager here means create bibliography, citation and reference list.
This is what is used in academic writing.
