A couple of things that might improve the experience:

The ability to search for keywords when "Studies Available" open. Now I have to guess at the nomenclature or go on the web and google variations.

The same ability ability to search for keywords when "Studies to Graph" open.

The ability to widen the studies window. Same for subgraphs.

Completely rewrite the studies interface, allow search and have they elements segmented by function then sorted and alphabetized.

On settings and inputs, the ability to sort the inputs and search the input names.

On studies, have a undo feature after "apply". This lets one test configurations.

I don't believe the ability to scale a multi lot trade is adequate without a lot of fidgeting with the trade window. I want to be able to put three on OCO and have a button to peal one off.

I use a footprint chart (number bars) and haven't yet found a setting that doesn't change/crowd the font on the bars. If it is there it is cryptically obscure. The "lock fill space" changes in a whim. Everything is set to "Scale Range Automatic" but it still changed as price moves off the chart. Frustrating.

I would like a chart label column without a DOM or the ability to remove all DOM features and keep the label column. Nice to have a DOM but I don't need it on every chart, I do however need a clean way to label indicators. Using volume profile already clutters the right edge, a label column would be organized.

Have you seen apps that have a "question mark" icon, once you click the ? then click on another object, it tells you what that object is and where to find the settings? Would save hours digging through obscure documentation.

Performance tuning: A screen evaluator - something that let you see the configuration of a chart and let you look for high CPU or time consuming study configuration. You can sort of do that no in the "Studies to Graph: window but it is a pain.

A way to dump a chart or chart-book to text to see all the settings. There is so much stuff buried many level deep - it would be wonderful to have all those settings in a text dump so you could find hidden configurations.
