How can we improve VectorVest 7?

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.

    The goal would be to indicate the format for the graph currently in use. (versus "knowing" the format from prior experience)

    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.

    Vectorvest staff Please please consider this as it will prevent making changes to a setup I think i'm in but am not and will be a HUGE help. I would love to know which of several similar carts I am actually in. PLEEEEEEESE.

    I fully agree. Showing the name of the layout somewhere on the graph would be super. The layout pull down list does show a color, but it needs to be higher contrast.

    I'm easy--please put a dot or something on the chart layout list to show the layout that is currently in USE

    When I graph a stock, I'd like to see which graph layout has been chosen. I have 15 graph layouts, and I would like to see the name of the layout noted on the screen somewhere in order to avoid confusion.

    It seems at least the selected layout might remain highlighted in the selection list, but on the bar at top of chart would be great.

    Where do I get access to Custom Layouts? I modify a good layout, eg VectorVest Simple, so it is exactly as I want it. Then press the save/modify button which brings me to a list of so-called custom layouts. Great. So I save it as "VectorVest Simple modified." So far so good. But then when I want to call it up later I can't find it or Custom Layouts anywhere, which defeats the whole object!

    Graphs layout does notdisplay the graph layout name that is loaded. this leads to confusion when modifying and sving differet versions

    I would give this one 10000 votes or even more if this system would let me do so. Too bad I am out of votes. Sincerely.

    On the graphs page, there is no way to tell which Graphs Layout is currently selected?
    Please add this feature, perhaps by highlighting the currently selected layout or showing it at the head of the graph.

    when wand (to wand an item is to place the cursor over the item) a Graph Layout or select (to select an item is to put the cursor over the item and to Lclick) a graph Layout … the Layout goes yellow but when then wand another Layout the latter goes yellow but the graph to the L of the window stays at the prior selected Layout … confusing … would want the yellow Layout to be the selected Layout and the yellow Layout to always indicate the graph that looking at Roy Stewart
