Show the Selected Graph Layout on or above the Graph
It would be nice to have the Selected Graph Layout name appear either above the graph or perhaps on the graph as a watermark. This should be a user controlled setting.

WORKAROUND for USER-DEFINED GRAPH LAYOUT NAME: (1) Create a Custom Field with the NAME of your Graph Layout. Eg "LOut My 3 Friends (=CI)". You will have to include a field in your definition and I usually use CI. (2) Select the graph layout you want to identify, and use Add Parameter to add the corresponding Custom Field. The field name will be displayed at the bottom of the list of parameters. (3) Click Save/Modify Layouts and SAVE this layout including your custom field. (4) Whenever one of these layouts is being displayed, the name of the layout will be there! NOTE: This works only for custom layouts that you have designed and saved. You could, however, make your own copy of a predefined layout, eg "My Vectorvest Simple" and use this workaround.

I really can’t understand why the Vector Vest persistently refuses to implement this very important graph feature. I am guessing, we should ask Dr Bart Diliddo for explanation.

I prefer that the graph name is displayed on the right panel where it is selected.
Keith Bridges commented
Display the layout that we are using on the screen.
Avery Blalock commented
Adjust the Graph Control Panel so that the Layout selected remains highlighted until a different layout is selected.
Junaid Malik commented
while using graph unable to tell which graph layout is in use.
just have the layout highlighted.

I first expected to see the name of the Graph shown after I opened it.
Then to my surprise found it wasn't, and wished it were especially when I have developred my own named Graph Set-Up.
Surely others must wish to see it, it surprises it is not Standard knowing how capable programmers can be. Still hoping this may be on the cards to happily surprise me next time :-)
it as standard,

I agree that the name of graph layout should shown somewhere on the graph screen. A good position would be next to "Last Close" at the bottom of the screen.
It would also helpful and efficient if we can right click to select different graphs as opposed the the current way of selecting different graph layout.
I use certain graph layouts to enter a stock trade, others to re-enter and buy more stock, and yet other graph layouts to confirm when to get out and sell. Having the name of the graph layout on the displayed graph will help me make certain I am in the right graph layout.
When I review a stock I like to look at it with many graph layouts, it would help to have the Graph layout name on the Graph
Agree, we are using more graph setups as time passes and sometimes we are looking at the right stock but with the wrong graph. It would help to have the selected Graph name somewhere on the graph.

Whilst it may not be as simple as some are suggesting (due to every user having the ability to create hundreds of new layouts) if there was some way of highlighting the name of the open graph in the Graphs Layout section this would overcome the issue of not knowing which Graph you are in at any time.
Larry Hess commented
When one uses the selected graph layout, it is easy to forget which one you selected. It would be great if that selected layout could be shown above/below/adjacent to the graph layouts pull down tab.
Earle Howey commented
When a graph comes up on the screen The specific layout under graph layouts in the graph control panel is showing for that graph should be highlighted or some how identified so I know which layout is currently showing.
Manny Bhat commented
When we select Graph Layout, it is not highlighting – due to that it is very difficult to understand which layout we are on. So please update to appear when we select any Layout it has to highlight (any colour) would be fine.
Bert Dickenson commented
The goal would be to indicate the format for the graph currently in use. (versus "knowing" the format from prior experience)
Ian main commented
A simple implementation would be if it was added as a readonly 'parameter' with some radio buttons used to determine its position in the chart....this way you would not have to hardwire it in the main gui...and it would not consume real-estate on the gui for those that are not concerned about it. It also keeps it modularized.

Or simply add the current selection to the label, "Graph Layouts."
