Default Optimizer improvements & dialog window

if you only could add field # Days next to hours in the remaining field in optimizer would be great.
I have very complex system and want to improve it, ok, i run optimization, it said 19h to go, so I said, fine, i am coming back in three days, o it will finish by then, but I came back now and I see (from the blue progress indicator) only about 3-5 % is done and it just jumped from 1 minute remaining to 24h remaining. Could this be solved PLEASE?

One more thing: since optimization is/might be running for several days/weeks, it would be great if the "please wait" dialog of optimization progress with the elapsed/Remaining times could be minimized and not be "above all" by default (if this can be swithed off in preferences, please let me know).

For the optimizer itself, you might think about monte carlo optimization type as it is done in Wealth-Lab, it gives very good results in a dramatically shorter period of time than full optimization.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
