Code applications disappear in Smart Coding Tool

I want to report a possible bug with code applications disappear in Smart Coding Tool.

To reproduce:
    enter smart coding tool
    add a new code
    previously applied codes disapper

Video and support file:

My workflow is to mark all text to be analysed with #segment code and then access those segments with the smart coding tool and then drag text segments on top of codes to apply them. Because of codes disappearing I have to quit smart coding tool. When activating the smart coding tool again I am loosing my progress and have to scroll to the necessary segment.

Also a feature request:
One annoyance of the smart coding tool is that I cannot find a way to setup smooth scrolling of retrieved segments on the right panel - it skips entire page when using mouse scroll wheel and at times crops a segment in half between two scrolls. I think a smooth scrolling should be allowed to choose like you would be able to do it in Adobe Acrobat reader. It is easier to focus on a text in the centre of the screen instead of it being at the bottom.
