Dear Olivier,
Thank you for your kind reply so far the only one.

The pointer by itself is looking bad and detracts attention from the
writing done even if it is positioned properly.

Definitely, it should be arranged options:

- to get rid from the pointer (handles) completely;
- to change the image of the pointer like small image, NULL image, etc.

To reproduce the disastrous look,
one can use example of textedit in richedits, widgets.

I will try to come with my minimal example to reproduce
the issue with child widgets positioning and re-positioning over the parents
and file it via the bug reporting system.

Who is the maintainer today for the Qt-Android port?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
