Hopefully, your RD plate is not suffering the same issue and only the spring has slipped and it is just a matter of fine-tuning.
BTW I always ride a little before final wrapping of the bars but understand why you were in a hurry to ride the great-looking P.
Best, Ben
I had an LJ derailleur that did something similar although not quite as horizontal as yours. Shifted fine but it wasnt like the vertical simplex ones I have seen.
