When using multiple monitors (something rather common nowadays), the code completion popup might expand to multiple monitors, making it difficult and annoying to read. Even worse: if the monitors do not have the same resolution (for example, if the monitor where code is being edited has more resolution) part of the popup menu might disappear completely, hiding its content to the user.
