    Reset Multiple Sim Accounts at once

    When testing multiple strategies on different sim accounts, it is tedious to reset each account after a test (Takes 5 mouse clicks per reset). I suggest adding a way to select multiple accounts to reset with one action or the ability to just reset all sim accounts at once.

    ResetAllSims.zip I created a quick and dirty add-on that will reset all SIM accounts, posting it here just in case anyone finds it useful.

    Goto New -> Reset All Sim Accounts

It would be great if you could right click a SIM account and create a duplicate account with all the settings already populated. I am testing almost 20 different strategies each with a different account. When the NT DB gets corrupted, (which it often does), when I delete the old DB and create a new one, all my previous accounts are gone and I need to manually create each one which is a tedious task that could be made simpler.
    Why manually re-create each one every time?
    So why not setup a pristine master copy of the DB that has everything needed?

    That is, after deleting the old DB, let NinjaTrader automatically create a new DB, and yes, everything is missing. So, now add your 20 Sim accounts, and whatever else that you need in the DB (such as ATMs, which NT7 stores in the DB, but NT8 does not).

    Before you do anything else, exit NT & copy this new NinjaTrader.sdf to a safe place. This is now your PRISTINE MASTER DB NinjaTrader.sdf -- this is your pre-initialized ready to go customized database with your 20 (empty) Sim accounts already added.

    From now on, to reset your database, your steps become,
    Exit NT
    Copy previously saved PRISTINE MASTER DB NinjaTrader.sdf to your db folder
    Restart NT

    This workaround will reduce your current 'reset' workload immensely.
