The instrument and symbol linking seems to link all charts accross the whole MC. Is it possible to activate linking only within a workspace / deactivate linking acrross multiple workspaces?

My problem is explained in the pictures. at the moment I can only have 14 workspaces (14 linking colours).

Today ECN connection exists with MC: IB, MBTrading and Dukascopy.
MB and Dukascopy are bucketshops. The only trades that are not internally bucketed (sent to prime brokers for execution) are their own 'hedging' trades.

a conflict of interest could occure for important features, if you can't get fast enough sponsors.
