New Auto-format formula feature ISSUES

So, the new auto-format formula feature seems like a nice idea, but it just popped into my design view tonight and it is driving me crazy.  When you expand down the formula bar, the option to Format text or Remove formatting appear.  The problem is they appear right over the top of the canvas so I find myself constantly moving it back out of the way.  The cursor keeps getting stuck on the "expand this option" style cursor and won't go back until I get all the way out so when I am testing instead of the normal cursor I am stuck with this one.  Additionally, the auto-complete recommendations still pop up, but now when I go to select the value by clicking on it, sometimes it just clicks right on the canvas in the background and doesn't make the selection (and it drops me out of the object I am righting the formula for).  It seems like a nice idea, but I think it really needs to be moved somewhere less obtrusive and debugged.

Same issue here...

 

So annoying that we no longer are able to use the mouse to select the suggestions in the intellisense-dropdown, or resize the syntax-field after it has been expanded initially.

 

This is a big step backwards in terms of developer-friendliness.

 

Could one of the MS administrators please indicate whether this is a bug, or whether it's intentional?

From my perosnal understanding, the expand option should be configured in an automatic way, for example, if user clicks on the canvas or the other pane, it collapses automatically.
