If you do not mind, I repeat my question.

Who can say why in the new version of the program the input field (CSS, JavaScript and other) moves left and right? Why is this done? Why make these fields so elastic?!
This is inconvenient and in previous versions did not notice this.

Example - https://cl.ly/6a74b680b7b3

And besides, for some reason, code completion did not appear.

Big request, please remove the project autosave when exporting! Because of this, a lot of developments have been lost in the project.
