Hi @EmilAhmaBoy , welcome to the forums!
You can exit and re-enter the repl. The overlap should disappear.
Hope this helps!


I knew this but after re-entering a Repl all tabs are closing

Do you mean folders?
Also, this is an existing issue, and this is the workaround available.

No, re-entering to the project closes all tabs on mobile app. Web version doesn’t closes and saves all tabs

Could you define ‘tabs’? I don’t quite get what you mean.
