Rendering the issue custom fields in the show view is done by the
class IssueFieldsRow, which can be found in issues_helper.rb.

The method IssueFieldRow#to_html has an error because the
class 'splitcontentright' will never be assigned.

This patch fixes this error by modifying the class in the respective
content_tag of the helper method. Thus, it is a one liner.

Thank you for this important information.

I have fixed it with some more css:

Old styles:
.splitcontent {overflow: auto; display: flex; flex-wrap: wrap}
.splitcontentleft {flex: 1; margin-right: 5px;}
.splitcontentright {flex: 1; margin-left: 5px;}

New styles:
.splitcontent {overflow: auto; display: flex; flex-wrap: wrap;justify-content: space-between}
.splitcontentleft, .splitcontentright {width: 49.5%}

This is how it looks like now:

It also looks nice on the project overview page where the same css classes are used.

Best Regards
