Sketcher constraints sometimes prevent selecting points

I sometimes have the issue that constraint symbols and their numbers, especially two-digit numbers, can obscure the points they are attached to. The solution currently is to find the constraint in the constraint list and hide it.

Maybe it would be a good idea to refine rendering the constraint symbols? A bit more of a distance could be nice.

Or the constraints could move a little out of the way when the cursor comes close to the point.

Faster than hiding the constraint is to zoom in select and zoom out. Especially the mode "Zoom at cursor" helps.

I normally only soom with the mousewheel, and the geometry positions do scale, but the Constraint symbols and numbers don't. So I can zoom in all I want, the problem persists. I may have to provide a screenshot next time I run into this.
