I would recommend using an external program to maintain a view of reference images. My personal favorite so far has been PureRef:

I am sure there are others but I have not looked in quite a while. I usually use it with the “always on top” window flag.

Found the answer, and it was really obvious:

(Sorry, I’m not used to Blender UI actually making sense…) :wink:

There are a couple of other (easier) ways to bring reference images into blender as well.

References as a part of the viewport background (only visible in the editor tile you add them to):

Image empties (visible from all 3d viewport tiles):
