Waterfall question

Curious if there is a way to extend the frequency setting line shown on the top part of the panadapter to show on the waterfall also. I have had occasion when it would be nice to be able to see where the signal you can see on the waterfall came from after the source is no longer broadcasting.
Example - I am listening or broadcasting on one frequency and notice on the waterfall a signal I would like to go to - a little time passes - that little yellow freq line would get you close if you could extend it to the signal you saw.

You can scroll backwards in time by scrubbing the right hand side of the waterfall. The length depends on your system setup (waterfall speed, available memory, etc.).

That should allow you to find a signal after it was finished *transmitting* - hope that helps.
