How to delete old contracts from showing up

I was curious how to delete old contracts from showing up when i drop the menu down for the symbol. I have such a long list that it just becomes cumbersome. I can't seem to do it in the instrument manager, historic data manager, or going into the folder db - data since the folders aren't labeled by instrument.

Where precisely do you see those old contracts ?
maybe a screen shot can explain...

In the instrument manager you can with the left/right arrows,remove an instrument form the active list
but i guess, that's too simple of an answer, so i guess your question is more complicated

No, yeah you're right. For some reason I was thinking I had to click the delete button and that wasn't working. I had used the arrow that points left to add the contract, but hadn't realized the other arrow took them off the list. I also had feared that taking the instrument off the list would some how delete that data, but after testing it seems to show up.

I feel dumb asking the question, but you can imaging downloading data for a couple dozen contracts over the years makes it cumbersome.

How can it be done in NT8? I assume your answer concerns NT7?
Thanks

I thought it was as easy as going into Tools-->Instrument Lists and selecting the product/contract you want and hit remove.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).




It does remove it from the list, but not from the list of contracts in your chart (presumably it's in a cache).


Perhaps asking NT support will do the trick.
