Re: Statusline - status of studies

The point is, if I have 20 loaded indicators and even as many strategies (for testing purposes), the statusline needs a lot place above the chart. To load all seperately would be a roundabout way in this case. So the thought, to hide them from the statusline but not completely delete from the chart.

Activate/deactive (and greyed out) with a click on it works. I thought to an option, to clear the statusline from deactivated indicators, but not delete it completely. (new activation via format->indicators...)...quasi a third state: active/inactive (greyed-out)/off (hidden).
