I have been looking at making some watch lists and noticed that when I load various instruments there is nowhere I can choose to have the full name of the instrument only the symbol. This of course doesn't make it easy for me to see what I am looking at as I keep having to refer to the list of components to identify the code with what the instrument name is.

Is there any options in the software to display the full name of the product either on the chart or in the chart header so instead of the symbol it displays the full instrument name.

This makes sense to have?

The descriptive name for a symbol is shown on the charts title bar. However, the symbol and its Description need to be added through Global settings >> Symbol Settings.
