Description

I'd like an option so that invisible plots do not effect chart scaling. As it is now, they do, and the only way to fix it is to remove the plot from the code. Not efficient.
I can see how it may be useful in some cases to leave the result as-is. But, I'd like to add a new option "Invisible+no scaling" for instance to get my desired behavior.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Add plots.  Make them invisible.  If the plot is far enough away from price, it will scale the chart even though it is invisible.

For invisible plots not to affect scaling would be OK (and desirable, I suppose) as an option, but never forget that the primary reason for developers to make invisible plots in the first place is EXACTLY for the purpose of affecting the scaling.   So, if you change anything here, be sure not to break it!

Actually, I imagine the most common reason for invisible plots is to provide additional information to the user in the data tips / data window, such as slope measurements and other convenient calculations.
