Improvement: (MPR) Transparent crossing of axes

I've just started using RadiAnt recently and I'm very positively surprised how good, quick and simple is the application! I bow before you.

However I use it mostly for micro CBCT imaging of dental root canals (for RCT), so these are very small structures I need to see (I often look for canal furcations, occluded canals, additional canals etc.). When I put the center point (where axes cross) on the spot I want to examine – there's always one of the following situations:
– with the axes visible the center point covers the spot so I can't see it;
– with axes turned off (F3) I see the spot clearly but I there are no axes to make minor adjustments (usually move or rotate); sometimes I need to examine a spot (the hardest ones) while adjusting back and forth;
– (as ep suggested in thread "MPR feature requests") with axes visible I grab the center point, hide axes (F3) then drag/rotate, but a) whole axes are invisible and b) I have to turn axes on again, before dragging.

I see a possible solution (observed in… Carestream I think… or maybe… I can't recall), that central parts of axes (like 10% of length? just the crossing) are invisible. This can be a user setting also. Is it possible?

Thank you for your kind comment! We will certainly consider improvements regarding the axes so that the center is not covered.

I Would like that option to clear the crossing as well. Or maybe just an option to reduce the opacity of axes lines..

Thanks for the great viewer.
