Automatically Rollover Additional Futures Symbols

Dear Support,

I am working on a performance tracking chart based on a user request, that uses multiple instances of the 'Add Additional Symbol' study.

I have just found that the Chart Setting: Automatically Rollover Futures Symbol applies to the main chart symbol only but not additional symbols overlaid by the above mentioned study. As a result, at the time of rollover just the main chart symbol rolls but not the additional symbols - they have to be manually rolled.

I want this chart to require minimum or no adjustments because of the high number of additional symbols used on the chart.

Can you please consider adding the feature/option: 'Automatically Rollover Futures Symbol' to the 'Add Additional Symbol' study?

Please also let me know if there is an alternative workaround I am not aware of to automate the roll of additional symbols.

Thank you in advance!

yeah, that is indeed very important.. i have a chart with lots of symbols with different expiry dates which is a great market overview but a PITA to maintain..
