Portfolio Register - Stock Ticker Symbol

How do I customize register to change Investment security Name to Ticker Symbol. I can't find a way to do that. If this is not yet available, I'd like to vote to add this.
Thank you

    We may use any unique name for a security we'd like.  If you want to change a security name, press Ctrl + Y, right-click on the security and select Edit.

    This did not answer my question. When I downloaded the security from my broker, the register shows security name, but not the ticker symbol. When I do what you are suggesting, I see the Ticker Symbol Column shows up on the security list. I'd like to have something like that on the portfolio register and I don't see where I can set up that preference.

    To have the ticker appear in the transaction list, you must rename the security so that the name begins with the ticker, like

    May I request that Quicken shall have customize feature to show the Ticker Symbol or show both Ticker Symbol and Security name. I do a lot of trading of different security, and having this customize feature would help me tremendously. Thank you
