Most of the time the bottom line of the box is going through the name and makes it really hard to read. Also, the zoom needs to enlarge more than it does
To flag these issues for the engineers, use the "Transcription error" menu at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Calling this a "Transcription error" makes it sound like there's just a problem with a particular highlight. But the opaque border on the highlight is a systemic problem, on every highlight, on every record. There should never, ever be an opaque border surrounding a highlight box.
The fix: Get rid of the opaque white border entirely, so no part of the record is obscured. The transparent blue highlight is all that's needed.
If the 1950 census project is planning to use the same "Review Names" interface, complete with opaque white border, then this must be fixed before that major project goes live.
If getting rid of the opaque border is somehow difficult and will take a long time, then give us the ability to switch the highlight on and off entirely. (We probably need that feature anyway, so faint writing can be seen better.)
Yes, like @jw__193 I too want to be able to peek under the box.
