An additional paragraph at the end of the 'Viewing as a Chart' section 
of Graphs and Charts.

For instance, if you have several securities in the same investment 
account, and if you were to display them all together, the result might 
not be too helpful, especially if their prices are markedly different. 
So, when configuring, de-select all accounts - None - and then just 
select a small number of securities to display.  To enable this, go to 
Settings>Configure KMM>General>Filter and select 'Show equity accounts'.

Feel free to extend/modify.
