Labels on overlapping Horizontal ACSIL generated lines

I am using ACSIL s_UseTool to draw multiple lines with DT_LEFT | DT_VCENTER alignment, sometimes these line will overlap at a price level. When this happens the labels associated with the lines will also overlap and become illegible and is a problem to asertain what named price level was touched.

One of the solutions is for me to write code to determine which levels are overlapping and then perhaps concatenate the labels on EVERY tick or bar close, this could be inefficient since you are already doing a lot of the work.

I see that you already have the logic in place that determines and displays the number of 'Additional' lines when I select a line. I would request you also display the combined comma seperated labels at that price levels - this would be more efficient and I am sure would be useful to others too.

Thanks so much for your consideration...

Let me clarify the problem:
1. I have 2 horizontal lines drawn using ACSIL s_UseTool with DT_LEFT | DT_VCENTER alignment labels.
2. These lines have labels - "Monthly High" and "Highest for Week" respectively
3. Both these lines are drawn at the same Price level 2890.00, therefore the lines will appear as 1 line because they overlap and also the labels overlap so the TEXT of the labels also overlap and will be illegible.

Possible Solution:
4. When I click the line(s) it shows a "1" to indicate that there is an additional line below it, this is the default behavior
5. Since you already have the logic in place, I am requesting/proposing is that you take the text of these 2 lines and concatenate it so it will show - "Monthly High, Highest for Week"
6. It would be more eficient for you to do this and certainly enhance the platform for your other users too

Please let me know if the request is still unclear...

4. It sounds like you are seeing the line number.

5. Chart Drawings are not designed in any way to do this. They are independent from each other.

4. I am not sure what I am seeing, here are the screenshots when I click on the overlapping lines, I just assumed it was the line count, if not it may not then it may be a good enhancement to display the 'Total line count'

5. I understand your point when using 'user drawn' lines, I am using ACSIL to display different levels automatically, which means depending on the price action the lines will overlap periodically sometime 4 lines at a time - and I have no way of knowing what levels I am looking at because the labels are illegible as you can see in the screenshot.
