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.

Glad to see this is "planned". However, comments for this go back to 2009. This needs to be a top priority. Definitely one of the most frustrating parts of this software.

when we are in graph, we don't know witch graph layout are we. Is it possible to highlight the select layout that the graph is on?

I updated the wrong Graph Layout. This would be a big help to make sure I'm updating the correct Graph Layout.

It seems that this has been requested for a long time. In the Graph Layouts title block, simply show which graph layout is selected e.g. Graph Layouts (Vector Vest Simple)

I notice that "Show the Selected Graph Layout on or Above the Graph" was first noted on Oct 2010 and PLANNED as of June 2018. Don't you think it's about time?

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.

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.
