Symbol import function in quote manager needs "symbol root" field

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

When importing a list of symbols from a csv file, (Symbol Name, Description, Exchange, Category) can be specified but not Symbol root. By default, the symbol is inserted for symbol root field.
This is fine when looking at individual symbols. But custom futures looks for the symbol root,
so for it to work, one must go back and change all of the symbol root fields related
to the desired custom future contract.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Import a symbol list (ie. front month for ES, and a few expired contracts) and setup a cutom future for ES. Load CF into a chart.

It is difficult and annoying to build a historical CF series, when importing the root is not possible.  I hope this is considered for a beta release.
