Widening the left and right selection boxes beside the playhead

I have to do a lot of editing of short verbal tics (like saying "aaaand" when I'm thinking of what to do next) from recordings of my class software demonstrations. Two times out of three I miss the Make Selection boxes either side of the playhead, the little green and red squares. Then I just move the playhead - not what I want and it wastes time. Can you not make them twice or three times as wide to match the playhead width in the next update? I occasionally design interfaces and, without looking at the code, I can't see any downside to this.

I agree that this issue needs fixing; the selection "sweet spot" over these selectors is way too small; the slightest misplacement of the mouse = a moved playhead instead of a selection

best workaround is to use shift + < or > keys
