A typical use of objects like callouts and pointers etc, is to say something
about a screenshot. For this, often the author needs to point at a precise spot
in the screenshot.

But Writer uses a "hand" pointer to move the "beak" of the callout. The hand
actually covers up the pointed end of the beak. This hampers precise placement
of the beak, as the author has to place the beak experimentally and see if it
has landed at the correct spot.

Please use a pointer with thinner footprint that does not hamper the placement.
In fact, once the beak is grabbed, Writer should not show the pointer at all!
Show only a dotted line for the moving beak.

Not a Writer problem; this is inherited from Drawing component.

Reproducible. But this is rather en enhanement than a defect.
