Description

I am not sure if something like this has been implemented into version 7 already, but just in case not I do a request.
When moving an achor point for for example trend lines and trend channels in snap mode one do not see where the moving anchor point on the lines are until one drop it. With Fibonacci Retracement this is easier because of the start and end of the fibo trend line.
I would suggest that the black square anchor point would move in line with the cursor when moving it. Another solution maybe would to let the black anchor boxes be where it is as now and just have a temporary marker.
As a change for the anchor black squares themselves I would suggest to make them smaller and (or just) transparent in the middle with a black center dot. The way it is now it can cover a combination of the high/low/open/close on three bars with tight bar spacing, making it difficult to see where you put it.

Steps to reproduce this issue

In MC 6.1 setup a trend line or trend channel in Snap Mode. Then grab an anchor point and make a couple of centimeters/an inch between the line and cursor while you move it back and forth.

In aftermath I see that my feature description is not clear. Simply put, it would have been useful to have a black square or dot which indicated where the anchor point would be before dropping an extended Trend Line or some other line tool into place. The way it is now, there is a black square on a already set line when activated, but when moving it to another place there is no indicator for where the new anchor point would be. With tight spacing between high, low, open, close and many bars it can be difficult to see where the anchor point will actually end up when dropping it.
