If I optimize a strategy in the regular MultiCharts application, the optimization report shows data for the following categories, and lets me sort by those categories:
1. Net Profit
2. Gross Profit
3. Gross Loss
4. Total Trades
5. % Profitable
6. Winning Trades
7. Losing Trades
8. Avg Trade
9 Avg Winning Trade
10. Avg Losing Trade
11. Win/Loss Ratio
12. Max Consecutive Winners
13. Max Consecutive Losers
14. Avg Bars in Winner
15. Avg Bars in Loser
16. Max Intraday Drawdown
17. Profit Factor
18. Return on Account
However, if I perform optimization using the portfolio backtester application, I only receive a small number of these categories, namely nos. 1-5 and 16. The portfolio backtester does not report the other categories. 
I find some of the missing categories to be very helpful, especially the "Profit Factor" number. Can these other categories please be added to the optimization report for the portfolio backtester, so that both optimization reports report the same data?

Steps to reproduce this issue

Run an optimization report in the main MultiCharts application for a single symbol.  Run an optimization report in the Portfolio Backtester application.  Comare the top columns in the "Optimization Report" window.  The Portfolio Backtester report will only show some of the categories showin in the MultiCharts report.
