Allow clearing of spots by panadapter or mode change + mode indicator

The new spots feature is great. Currently clearing the spots clears spots from all panadapters.
It would be nice to be able to have the option to clear only a specified panadapter and also have an option to automatically clear spots for a panadapter when the slice mode is changed and only allow spots for that mode to appear on that panadapter.

Example: If I'm monitoring CW on 2 pamadapters and decide I want to work digital on the second panadapter but continue to monitor CW on the first then I would want to clear the CW spots on the second panadapter only,  either manually or by mode change without clearing the first panadapter. Otherwise the CW spots are still being displayed while I'm working digital or I have to clear all spots on all panadapters.

This should be a selectable option in case someone is monitoring multiple modes on the same panadapter with multiple slices and they do want spots for multiple modes on the same panadapter. In this case it would be nice to have an indicator (flag/color) next to the spot to indicate the mode so it can be determined at a glance without having to move the mouse from spot to spot. An option to allow the op to specify what flag symbol or color to display to designate the spot mode would be nice also.

    An option to clear spots on the active slice would be useful.  Maybe a button (under the DAX (IQ selector) on the left side of SSDR.   Also is there a timer for these spots?  I have seen some on 160 meters still show as much as 45 minutes after they had left the Band or changed frequencies.  Did I miss setting a timer to auto clear spots somewhere?
