I believe both issues are related to recently discovered bugs with the new version. One is the width calculation problem when there is a bigger margin on the search bar, and the other is a z-index issue on the settings box.
I recommend keeping the 4.9.7 for now, I'm pushing a hotfix release later today when done testing. It will be available in the auto updater within 12 hours, on codecanyon a bit later – as their approval process take like 5 days unfortunately.Best,
