Bug Description

OS: Linux

When the bug appears: always

How to reproduce the bug: maximize the window, choose horizontal layout, at the top line of code editing pane. type "hello.", and wait for the autocomplete window to appear. The autocomplete window will show, but most of it will be out of the screen.

Better behavior: The autocomplete window should appear under the insert position when there is not enough room above the insert position for the autocomplete window

Thanks for the suggestion and the patch. I agree that this is a problem. However, I don't like just putting the completion list below the cursor, since the call tip would also appear below the cursor and they would be one on top of the other.

Perhaps the solution is to put the completion list below the cursor and the call tip above it (since it is only informational and can be moved).

I leave this as a wish.
