Is it possible to reset, remove or clear a plotted line in multicharts?

I have tried noplot on previous bars but it doesn't really remove the price point - if you start a new plot the line still connects to the last noplot position and mess things up.

sharper,

it's possible to some extend. One of the more elegant ways in my opinion is setting the plot color to the background color when you don't want the indicator to be visible. I'd also send the plot to the back, so it's behind the bars.

I'd like to see a "RemovePlot" function... that would erase the previous line.. I have the same need.
Suggest it , so we can vote for it... (on the MC Forum)..

Yes, me too or for starters the option to stop plot lines from being connected.

Something like this works in TradeStation. I use this kind of code when I want a plot to display conditionally. This can also be used to stop plots that are meant to be horizontal lines from connecting when the level changes

 
Code
Setplotcolor[1](1, Transparent);

True and they also have the ability not "to automatically connect plot lines". Both features are so far not implemented in MC.

Use NoPlot and "point" for the plots. ( I realize this is an old topic).
