Hello,
not sure what is the problem here. Is this related to issue in editing config.cfg file?

The issue is the shaded triangle area I have highlighted inside red rectangle - with perfect straight line - it is not real - it's a Locus chart calculation or drawing error. The artifact varies with pan & zoom - you can see the real thin line of bolder color for the proper gradient chart. Only related to config.cfg in as much as Y axis zoom requires a setting change.

Ah understand. I believe this is a problem in the chart rendering system.
1) I plan to completely change it for a new chart system (already used for example in bottom panel in Route planner)
2) vertical scroll is an advanced feature, not too much used

Result for me is: small problem with really low probability to happen for most of the users and complicated task to solve. So sorry, this won't change. Thanks for understanding.
