Drawing curves with meshes selected

I´m drawing a Cathedral from picture frame and a scanned mesh.
The drawing (2D curves)has the exact measurements.
The picture frame with the photographs needs to be corrected to the drawing, that´s easy.
The mesh needs to be corrected too but when I select the mesh, it is impossible to see what is on the mesh because of the highlighted representation of the mesh. I can not scale or move because i can´t see a detail on the highlighted mesh.
Is there a way to change the way it highlights ? You can change the color, yes, but that isn´t helpfull.

Anybody any suggestions ?
