When using WebSearch entries, the search name appears left of the text area, reducing the amount of space available. The longer the name, the less query text will be visible. I would suggest to keep the text area as large as possible, and indicate that the search is selected in a different way.

As it looks now

search-current

Some alternatives:

A) Do nothing, leaving the search title in the bottom area
search-full

B) Replace the search icon, e.g., with an arrow directing the text into the search
search-arrow-bottom

C) Add an arrow next to the search icon
search-arrow-bottom-extra

D) Add an icon left of the text area
search-arrow-top

E) Add a middle layer between text area and selected search, directing the query to the search (non necessarily an arrow, nor an overlapping one)
search-arrow-center

I made a change so that the width allocated to the selected item title - i.e. Search DuckDuckGo here - shrinks from half width of the window to two fifths. As a result, when item's title is wide, Keypirinha will switch from the large font to the normal font.

Admittedly this is still not ideal and does not cover all the cases but changing the GUI layout is a no go at the moment due to time constraints. I hope this change will improve your experience a bit.
