    Josh, you say "but all I can do is report it to the development team". Does this mean you are reporting this issue the same way that you would report hundreds of other "feature requests" OR are you actually highlighting to the development team that this is NOT a usual feature request but rather a mistake that has resulted in lost functionality and it needs to be corrected ASAP as its affecting numerous users! Appreciate your assistance with this issue.

    Hello Josh,
    it is vital to be able to hide data series used only for calculations so please add my vote.
    By the way I agree 100% "To restore this lost functionality is not a Feature Request, it is the restoration of lost functionality."

    We are not voting for a Feature Request. We are telling you that a mistake has been made and it needs to be corrected.

    Restoration of lost chart functionality caused by a recent "fix" is not a Feature Request. What we had in chart function was the Feature. Unfortunately NT developers did not understand how it was used. Restoration of lost functionality so significantly impacting workspaces and chart function should be considered a critical fix, not something on the normal feature request track. We are not voting for a Feature Request. We are telling you that a mistake has been made and it needs to be corrected.

So, the upgrade from 8.0.15 to 8.0.16 does not work for me. Please treat the reversal of Issue 13207 changes with the urgency of a critical fix, which it is now for those who have for many years relied on minimum height or hidden chart panels in their workspaces.
    I agree. This was working and it wasn't something you couldn't get out of.

    Who ever suggested fixing it or took it upon themselves to fix it, SMH.

    I'll have to find the early beta screenshots that showed its been working since for a long time.

    This is very well put.......I agree 100% "To restore this lost functionality is not a Feature Request, it is the restoration of lost functionality."

    Lancer, that's correct. In prior versions I reduced 6 panels to minimum size (zero) to completely hide them as they are all data series panels I don't need to see.

    TraderYoda, is your screenshot showing the minimum chart panel vertical dimension now in 8.0.16.1? If so, 8.0.16.1 won't work for me either as I have panel heights on all charts reduced down to show no more than the height of the panel label text, with no extra space below the text.
