I agree this could be improved, but I currently use different icons and titlebar names for my 3 instances. I changed the target for the windows shortcut by appending "/chartname:customname. Also, you can just use change icon under the windows shortcut properties and there are a small number of different options.

You can plot a midline using the Average of Two Subgraphs study, but not sure what you mean by ability to plot continuous.

Worked Thanks

More support for extensions

Support for creating extensions that are not related to a specific chart or dom would be great.

The extensions should have access to the api's for trading, positions, datafeed and quote spreadsheet.

sierra chart

the platform is excellent value, robust, handles tick charts no problem, the delta market numbers are very stable, in NT the delta market indicators are not so robust, this platform is truly advanced, and I have tired all of them, I very sad to report, the disadvantage for me is that you have to be a whiz programmer to get an indicator up and running if you have an idea for a indicator

What type of programming did you try? ACSIL or spreadsheet study? I use the latter because I'm reluctant to learn the ropes of ACSIL. Till now I found only one situation wherein the spreadsheet study did not suffice. I dropped that indicator from my wishlist.

Quickly Hide/Show an indicator

When right click on the Region Data Line, it shows all the indicators in the region. It would be nice to have a check box in front of each indicator to quickly hide or show the indicator.
