How can I disable the automatic Sum aggregation when adding new y-axis columns in a line chart in TIBCO Spotfire Analyst?

Long version

Hello all,

our users complain about an annoying feature (bug?) in TIBCO Spotfire Analyst (7.7.0): Whenever they add an additional column in the y-axis of a line chart, the aggregation for this column is automatically set to "Sum". What's even worse: the aggregation for all existing columns is set to "Sum", as well.

This makes working with pivoted data with lots of columns outright impossible - imagine you've got 20 columns displayed and want to add another one. This requires you to reset the aggregation for 21 columns to "None".

Can this behaviour be changed so that new columns get "None" as the default aggregation, and (even more important) that the aggregation for existing columns is left alone?

Thanks & kind regards, Frank
