Description

I'll try to describe what in my opinion is sort of a minor bug/feature request, depending on how you look at it, which occurs on adding studies using a keyboard.
 
Assume we have an open chart and would like to apply a study named "Grail v.2" to it. We open "Insert study" window, where the active tab just happens to be Indicator, not Signals (since earlier we might have applied an indicator to our chart). Yet not realising that we still press G on our keyboard, which obviously enough brings us to the first indicator beginning with G, which just might as well be "Grail Ind." in our case, it is now highlighted (but not applied to the chart yet). At this point we realise our mistake, switch to "Signals" tab and finally add our "Grail v.2" to the chart (by finding it on the list of signals in whatever way we like, highlighting it and then clicking OK or pressing Enter). However, not only the desired signal has now appeared on our chart, but also the "Grail Ind." indicator is present on the chart as well. IMO, this isn't really an example of expected behaviour since a study is applied to the chart essentially against user's intentions, which are clearly expressed by not clicking the OK button.
