Try getting rid of the line break
The line break occurs just because of lag of space. When I move the window to the right of the timeline the line break disappears.
exact Ae version? Exact Os?
try to make a simple test and link an expression outside of a simple composition to narrow down your issue.
show us a full screenshot of your interface with both timelines so we can see what you are doing.

If you are having problems with line breaks I think you are using Sierra. Solve it by renaming the asset you are trying to link to by selecting the layer or the comp, pressing the enter key to start editing the name. Before you start typing anything hit the delete key twice then rename the asset and press enter. That should solve your problem. It's the only known sure fire work around for this bug in Sierra.
If you are not on OS X Sierra then we need a lot more details.*
thanks for your answer. I do not have any problems with linebraks. The line just jums because the timeline is to short to show the whole expression in one line.
Fin below tec specs and further informations.
I just realized that I have a line break problem ...
Even that I am still working on OS X 10.10.5 with After Effects CC 2015.3 (June 2016) I noticed that when I wanted to rename the asset layer by hitting enter, the name nearly disappeared by shifting to the top ... that was really suspicious so I tried what you recommended and IT WORKS!!!!
Thanks a lot!!!!!!!!
after all it was a line break and somehow also part of the problem.
Thanks a lot!!!
