Description

An Opt Report once generated needs to stay with its chart, through any chart copy or workspace save operations.
Please see:  http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6620
for a bit more discussion.
IMO, this is a CRITICAL need.   From the usability viewpoint, MC simply does not compete as a platform for serious market analysis and strategy testing without these capabilities.
I note further that this capability is merely about the ability to copy and save what already exists.  As such, this should be a technically straightforward enhancement to make.  Yet functionally, the presence or absence of this capability makes a monumental difference in the overall backtesting/optimization utility of the platform.
Please pluck this low-hanging fruit and let us eat it!

Hi.  I just want to say again that permanent saving of the Opt Report is an important
feature, the lack of which makes MC's fast optimization ultimately much less useful than it otherwise would be.  I hope that this item is judged important enough to
be part of 7.5.

Again I plead this case - once done, an optimization needs to be savable, reloadable, browsable.
IOW, the capabilities that pertain in a chart immediately after an optimization completes need to be re-instantiable at any future point WITHOUT having to re-run the optimization itself.

It should be possible to save the optimizations report in M;C that the developer can later go back to earlier optimization values as it is possible in TradeStation.
Thank you for adding this feature.

There do exist teams who co-develop advanced strategies, and without this enhancement, that process becomes quite burdensome.  I fully concur with others who desire to have this become a reality.
 
Thanks

Hi.   I see the status here is now marked as confirmed.  Here's hoping the next MC 8.5 Beta release sees this addition.  :^)

In MC 8.5rc 64b Build 6662 I am observing that when a chart is copied the Opt Report disappears.

OK, it's a pref setting.  Cool.  Thanks!

I enabled this in preferences and at first it didn't seem to work, but then...
 
I copied the chart to a new chart in the same workspace, closed the workspace and opened it up and then it seemed to work.  IS THIS EXPECTED BEHAVIOR?
 
Other than that hanks much for coding this feature.  It will help alot!..  No more writing down good parameters.  Now I can keep them all.  Especially useful when for long simulations.
