Chart edit functionality

It is possible to edit timeseries directly in the chart (when in edit mode). To do this a user must first select the timeseries the user wants to edit. Selecting a timeseries can be done by:

  • clicking the table column header
  • clicking the chart legend item.

Once a timeseries is selected the font of its column header and legend will become bold (see figure 3). Now the user can click in the chart area using the left mouse button. To save the edits the user must again select the currently selected series to deselect it or must select an other series for editing.

Persistence of manual edited imported data

When existing imported data is edited a re-import of the data will not rollback the edit. This is not the case for completions and for data that is the result of transformation.
