making revisionslider pointer easier to hit by mouse or finger
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points

Description

Problem: The sliders are rather small which makes grabbing them slow (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitts%27s_law)

Solution: We could make the pointers (blue/yellow triangle) slightly larger than they appear. The appearance in not influenced; interaction is slightly more tolerant to sloppy pointing. As an estimate, we could make the active area larger (e.g. by using a partly transparent graphic) by 4px left, right and top/bottom (depending on the arrow, they should not cross the horizontal line)

Here the outline for the active areas before (inner) and after (outer) the proposed change
