Thanks for taking care of that feature :-)
May I suggest to rather use the two-list widget as in the monochrome print configuration implemented by Rick ? I think it is not more complicated for the user, and offers more possibilities (like ordering which properties to cycle first). 
I find Rick's implementation for monochrome printing excellent. I like the additional options (max curve width and point density), which must be preserved. The only things it lacked (in my opinion) were:
1) the ability to cycle curve colors (not surprising for monochrome printing!), possibly with an option to select the palette to cycle through directly here when colors should be cycled as well (I know you've also added it to kst settings, but the user might want to override default settings temporarily here)
2) the ability to cycle plot-wise, window-wise or session-wise (which you have thought of)
3) the scope of application (should possibly be plot, window, all windows to be consistent with 2) above, but then it requires a plot list in some cases)

I am not sure 3) is worth the effort though, as we have to look at all possible combinations with 2), some of which might be inconsistent (like applying window-wise cycling to a single plot). This probably requires further thought...
