Post From: Problems with Trade and Current Quote Symbol

I'm having some trouble setting up my charts to use the Trade and Current Quote Symbol option. I want to chart on the full CL contract and execute on QM. I have attached a screenshot which relates to the notes below.
Chart on left (chart #4)
Trade and Current Quote Symbol: QMU19_FUT_NYMEX
Use As Trade Only Symbol: Checked
Chart on right (chart #7)
One trade only of -3 contracts was executed on the left chart (#4)
Under the Trade Panel and the Trade Activity Log chart #7 shows the correct P/L of 19 ticks. Chart #4 shows the exact same order but the P/L as 50876 ticks which is obviously incorrect.
I have been through the documentation and what is described there with respect to "Use As Trade Only Symbol" and tick size is not what I am seeing on my charts. Can you please comment on wether this is working as intended?
Chart #4 "Show Orders and Position" is checked but the position line is not shown on the chart. Is it possible to have the position and order lines shown?
When "Use As Trade Only Symbol" is NOT checked the last trade price box disappears from the price scale. Is this intended?
When the "Trade and Current Quote Symbol" option is not used both charts behave as expected.
