Summary0016579: An option to disable hints in identifier completion popup
DescriptionCurrently indentifier completion popup shows a hint for selected item. Large hints that do not fit into available screen space are moved to the left (see the attached screenshot). This makes autocompletion options extremely hard to read since item text constantly jumps to the left side and back depending on selection.

An option is needed to disable this hint, so that autocompletion popup could show selection only (see the bottom of the attached screenshot).
TagsNo tags attached.

I think the former behavior was good too: the label was expand only to the right.
So there should be three options:
left aligned with completion box,
expand in both directions.

Configurable in Options/Editor/Automatic Features

Off, Right-Only, some-left, as-far-left-as-the-monitor-goes
The 3rd (some-left) allows half the drop-downs client-width (200pixel) to the left.

Additionally the hint can now be timed. So it doesn't pop up while you type, or scroll through the list. Only if you idle (and wait for it)
