Summary0000752: sketcher constraint visuals default location and auto constraint visuals are often placed over the top of others
1) sketcher manual constraint visuals default editable (i.e. partly moveable) location on a sketch, after creation
2)as well as auto constraint visuals default non-editable location on a sketch

are often placed over the top of others of their type and each other.

For example, length of line constraint and distance of point along line constraint, located somewhere along the same line will both print their value in the same spot on the screen and thus sit over the top of each other.

This bug is less important that it may have otherwise been due to the fact that manual constraint values can be dragged with the mouse in one direction, and thus pull one out from under the other.

I made a few small improvements to this, but I've still got a problem with constraints such as horizontal and distance that share the same line. It's a problem with the ray pick method and needs further investigation.

I am hoping it can be improved further, but has less priority respectively.

I am not happy with the overlapping constraints icons. It seems to not work at all now. I think this needs a complete re-write for 0.14 and hopefully improve the performance at the same time if time permits.
