Missing "%" sign in scanner window for "% Chg" column

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

Its a standard to display percentual values with a percent sign. This is not the case in the scanner window which makes it hard to distinct the value from the "Net Change".

See my screenshot for a scanner example from MultiCharts and from Tradestation.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Open a scanner window add some stocks. Add columns "Net Chg" and "% Chg".

Please put that issue inbetween. Can't be hard to change. Its still not fixed in the brandnew .NET edition. It might seem to be minor to you but its a big help to orientate with large amounts of numbers on the screen.

Do i understand you correctly that you would like to have "Net Chg" and "Net % Chg" columns?

Thank you Andrew for considering my feature request.
The requirement is quite easy. In % based columns always show a percent sign behind the number.
Example: Instead -10,97 show it as -10,97%. So its visually clear that its a percent value and not absolute value.

Is this lowest priority now? I expect the effort to implement that as minimal.

It will be implemented, but there is no ETA yet due to low priority. The status will be changed to "Confirmed" and the feature will be assigned to a particular version once it scheduled for any.
