The following happened as I tried to org-refile a task:

The problem is that the default suggestion is too long and makes every suggestion below scroll to the left. Could it be possible to anchor the suggestions to be able to see their beginning, or alternatively to have a way to scroll them horizontally?

I’m sorry, but I’m still having an issue. I updated to the latest Melpa version, and I still see text truncated to the left although there is much space on the right:

The problem is that, as I type too many characters, there is not enough space for the prompt and the entered text to fit. The prompt is then truncated on the left, which is fine, but all the suggestions below also are truncated.

Thanks, I confirm it’s much better.

(edit) I’ve got another case where the problem happens. For some reason, the shortening did not work here:

so as soon as I start typing things go wrong. More precisely, I forget to remove the initial caret, so there is no match. However the prompt has scrolled a lot

Deleting the text I entered does not scroll back:

(Note that this is not too bad: I can simply abort the current refiling, start again, and this time delete the caret first. In that case, when there are available completions, then the window only scroll a little.)

I’m wondering if a better solution to this could be to allow to scroll back to the left, or to have the text input on the second line, starting at the beginning of the line.
