Copy Chart Drawings From Other Charts

I'm aware of Sierra Charts current 'Copy Chart Drawings From Other Charts' capabilities, and they're very good.
However, I'm looking to be able to set Chart Drawings being copied to a Destination Chart (i.e. on/off), quickly with a single keystroke.

Obviously, on a Destination Chart there's the setting Chart Settings >> Chart Drawings Tab >> Copy Chart Drawings From Chart #'s, to control drawings copied through from a list of charts.
Would it be possible to do something like the following:

1) Alongside the existing setting 'Copy Chart Drawings From Chart #'s', introduce a new Yes/No Setting 'Copy Chart Drawings From Other Charts', that would control whether or not drawings are actually copied from this Chart List or not.
2) Introduce a Read/Write ACSIL variable to read/set this new setting to Yes/No - i.e. sc.CopyChartDrawingsFromOtherCharts

Thank you for your time

+1 on this request.

Ideally I'd like to add buttons to the control bar of a chart so that I can control which other charts' drawings are copied/rendered to the current chart.

Currently I have to hit F5->Drawings tab and modify the "Copy Chart Drawings from Chart #" on the fly if the drawings are too "noisy".

I was researching if I would be able to create a custom control bar button for this using ACSIL but I guess it's not possible.

That would be a really nice feature to have, even better if the buttons/filter feature is out-of-the-box!

Thanks, SC!

For the avoidance of doubt the above suggestion regarding buttons on the control bar of a chart is of no use to me.

I have most of my charts detached with no title, menu or control bar displayed.
I need something fast and efficient (i.e. single keystroke and that's it - job done), as per my original post.

Are you able to give any kind of timings for this at the moment - i.e. Days, Weeks or Months?

Thank you for your time.
