Divide an Edge

Hi there, I have been using SU now for many a year, mainly in a Civil Engineering capacity but with occasional forays into Architecture. A minor annoyance l have is when it comes to dividing an edge or line. After highlighting the required line and then selecting “divide” the next step is to point and move the cursor over the line. Then up comes a panel that informs me how many segments and the length of each division. So far so good but my trouble is that the black cursor arrow annoyingly carefully places itself over the number of segments selected, making it impossible to see or read it! Can this be fixed?
