Why is it not desired? Are you talking about the "…" or the whole
overlay, including the spaces?

I do not notice any misalignment, unless I type in the column, in which
case, I realign it the usual way, e.g., with TAB.

Could you show an ECM?

If you read the initial thread, you will notice that I asked for
feedback during the development of the feature. I also integrated
suggestions. As a developer, I cannot do more. In any case, I did not
impose this on anyone. We're going nowhere with your remark.

I don't know. You still have to point out what "things" you are talking
about. So far, you only expressed your dislike of the change. I think
I got it already.

I didn't think so two years ago, when I implemented this, and I still
don't think so.
