Colors and visibility are switched in "Format Chart Trading"

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

In the "Format Chart Trading" dialog and the "Historical Orders" tab, the colors and visible Colors and visibility flags for both Buy and Sell order label and # of contracts are switched around.
That is:
1. In the SELL section, the "Order Label" color and visible flag actually affects the number of contracts and order price displayed on the chart.
2. Similarly in the SELL section, the "# of contracts" settings affect the order label formatting.
3. In the BUY section, the "Order Label" visible flag actually affects the number of contracts.
4. Similarly, in the BUY section, the "# of contracts" visible flag affects the order label.
5. Note that in the BUY section the colors work as expected.

Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. Open a chart
  2. Open the Chart Trading dialog from the chart trading button at the top right.
  3. Make a complete trade (buy and sell)
  4. Right-click in an empty space on the chart trader and select "Format Chart Trading".
  5. Select the "Historical Orders" tab
  6. Change the SELL Order Label color (to Red, e.g.)
  7. Set the SELL order label to Visible
  8. Set the SELL # of contracts to Invisible (not required, but just so we can't see it in this example)
  9. Notice that the # of contracts and price is actually displayed in Red, NOT the order label.
  10. Use a similar methodology to test the other "order label" and "# of contracts" colors and visibility flags.

I'm positive I selected version 8, but somehow this issue says version 7. I can't seem to change it either.
Also, I can post screenshots if that would help clarify things.

Should be fixed in latest build of MC 8.8. Please make sure your build number = build number from download web page of multicharts.com

Okay, maybe my understanding of the label names is incorrect. However, there is still some inconsistency. Please see the attached pictures. I suppose we can assume that the SELL side of things is correct, but the BUY side has problems.
