Way to show labels for indicators/studies and signals on the charts itself?

Is there a way to show the labels of the studies/indicators as well as the signals itself next to the charts as it is progressing throughout the day? I understand that you can see what studies are selected on the status bar but it is not color coded to match with the charts and it is difficult for me or anyone not as versed with MC to look at the screen and understand what the yellow or red histogram does or which one represents a volatility study etc. It would be useful to see it labeled next to it. Is there a way to accomplish this through PowerLanguage or settings? Thank you kindly.

cestnoir,

could you show an image of what exactly you want to achieve, as I am afraid it's not quite clear to me?

Regards,

Hi, something like this where the labels are off to the side of the lines/charts/indicators or somewhere near it to let the viewer know what it is they are looking at.

cestnoir,

this can only be done with placing a text next to the plot value and constantly update its location.

Is it possible to just have it labeled on the subcharts color coded near the respective graphs through PowerLanguage?

Yes, you will have to use the reserved words like Text_New_self etc., but you'd still have to update the location.
