    What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
    I would love to see the ability to change which lists appear in the main window, and as a secondary request, be able to change the order they display in when using the next and previous buttons.

    This means I could disable the information I don't need/want. For example, I don't much care about seeing power gains. I don't care about DPS either as I feel Damage Done is more important, plus it also shows DPS on that window already. In the config window, I should be able to uncheck the various power gains and DPS functions (or any function I choose), and it would no longer show those in the main window.

    As for the secondary request: As a healer, I often like to switch back and forth between the Damage Done and Healing Done windows to keep track of my healing, and also see which DPS player would be most beneficial to battle-res. Currently there's a few lists in between, so I'd love to be able to move Healing Done to be right after Damage Done so I can quickly change between them. I know currently I could right click and switch by selecting the list I want, but this requires a bit more attention which is not great while paying attention to the battle.

    Please provide any additional information below.
    Players use recount for all sorts of reasons, and I think this would give great functionality to both those who use it as a raid leader to check for specifics like dispelling and interrupting, or people who just want to see how their damage/healing is compared to the rest of the group.

    I would think that this should be pretty simple as long as the feature was display-related only, but it could possibly become more memory efficient as well if unchecking certain modules turned off tracking for them completely. Seeing as I don't have memory issues, this isn't much of a concern to me...I'd really just like the ability to turn off the display of certain info in the main window.

    I have found a way to edit the LUA files to move/disable things manually, even though certain modules were off in their own files. But, I think it would be better to be an actual option, so everyone can benefit from it and so it doesn't get reverted once an update occurs.

    Thank you!
