Limit investment graph time period shown to that of all Quicken data file transactions

For the portfolio graph, when max is selected for the graph, it shows the graph back to 1970 or something crazy.  My transactions only go back to 1995.  Can the time axis be fixed such that at max, it only extends back to the time period for which records are available in the quicken data file?  See picture below.

    I would like to see this option be added to the existing choices. That is, retain the existing functionality of Max, and add a choice for Lifetime of the holdings in the particular account(s) being shown. Perhaps label the button for this new choice Life.

    This option really needs to be added so that investment graphs accurately reflect underlying account values.  The time period really needs to reflect only that for which there are underlying investment transactions.

    It seems this idea was actually implemented since the original request 5 years ago, wasn't it? When I look at my portfolio for Investing, the graph begins in late 1983, which matches my earliest investing transaction in Quicken. When I switch to a specific account which has transactions beginning in late 1999, the graph begins in late 1999.

    When I launch Quicken 2017, it does not work this way. I think this was likely fixed when the portfolio screen was redesigned/updated in the Quicken 2018 time frame.

    Unless I'm missing something, this idea request can probably be marked as implemented.
