Comment indicators hide too much of the cell.

See: http://i.imgur.com/3Ejqm9t.png

In previous versions of LO, the comment indicator did not have a white border around it.  The new white border causes the obscured area of the cell to be so large that it makes it difficult to discern the value in the cell.

In the example above, is that a 13 or a 15?

Recommendation: Remove the white border and change the comment indicator from a square to a right triangle.  This will dramatically reduce the obscured area.

Can also add an alpha value to the comment indicator to make it translucent.
