Add preview image of Equity Curve for each result in Optimization report

I believe one of the most important things is a very even and well behaved equity curve. But right now, I cannot view the equity curve when trying to decide which of hundreds (or thousands) of optimization results to choose.
I would like to be able to just hover my mouse over a new column "Equity Curve Preview", and when I hover then I will get a large preview window pop-up that shows me the equity curve. Or some other quick means to compare the equity curves inside of the optimization results report.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Feature request.

To add to this, please see the chart I posted here:

If you could add the capability of optimizing against a linear equity curve, that would be great. I think you could simply take the blue dashed line in my example (bottom left to top right linear line) and then look at the standard deviation from that line, with the smallest deviation being the best fit.

Hi Big Mike,
Would it help if the folks at MultiCharts implemented the "K-Ratio" as developed by Lars Kestner? I think it's similar to what you have in mind.

Please add Equity Curve thumbnails for each symbol to Portfolio Backtest > Performance Report > Breakdown by Symbols. Being able to see them all in one place will make it much more convenient to see the look of the curve without having to click into each and every one.

I agree that both Equity Curve thumbnail images and ability to optimize against equity curve linearity would be excellent features to have in MC.

Maybe it helps we can see a group or all Equity Curves in one Graphic like 100 or more equity Curves in the Monte Carlo Chart!
