Checkbox on/off for opt inputs

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

Originally from the Forum:


I would like to suggest an addition to the Optimizable Inputs dialog
This addition would consist of a checkbox next to each item.
If checked, the item is active. If not checked, the item is inactive.
Assist buttons would consist of "All On" and "All Off".
This would allow fast configuration of optimizations across just the inputs desired at the moment (without destroying or requiring edits to the other parameter ranges).

Steps to reproduce this issue

N/A - feature does not yet exist in MC

The checkboxes are now in MC 8.5rc, however I have an observation about the implementation:
In the Exhaustive Search Properties
dialog it seems that when a box is UNchecked (meaning do not optimize
this param, and ignore the range settings without perturbing them) the
opt runs not with the Current Value (as it should), but with the Start
Value of that param.
Then, after the opt, if you go to apply one
of the opt results, the Current Value is back in effect, meaning that
you cannot get the result that you see from the opt table instantiated
on the chart.
Correct behavior would be:
When a param box is unchecked, use the Current Value during the opt
When a param box is checked, use the Start Value, End Value, and Step Value during the opt
all cases, when applying an opt report result, the chart should take
the params used in that iteration and thus agree with the opt report
If I am misunderstanding the current facts, please let me know. Thanks.
Oh, and adding  "All On" and "All Off" ability would be VERY helpful.   Thanks!
