I am trying to set up Emacs and AUCTeX to show error information buffers in a way like the following, automatically, tiling the TeX file, overview and error windows:

tiled tex file, overview and errors

The screenshot comes from How to increase (relevant) verbosity of compilation errors with Emacs+AucTeX? but there is no indication of how to bring this layout about. I can get the overview buffer to appear, but clicking on the error opens another buffer at the bottom of the TeX file, which I'd like to avoid.

Edit: Perhaps more clearly: Is is possible to get *TeX Help* to open a new buffer in the *TeX Help* buffer?

Using Gnu Emacs 26.3 on a Mac (Catalina).
