Have to stand in the open to use overwatch?

Every time I have my guys in full cover and try to set them to overwatch they can’t aim around the cover. So basically I can only overwatch where my flanks are, rather than defending from the direction I think the enemy will come from while also being ready to fire at them if they come from that direction.

Yeah that seems to be, at least from what I can see, how it works … I think it’d be helpful if it WERE to work that way that you could go into a ‘free aim’ mode, so you knew exactly WHAT areas are being covered, not just some vague cone.
