[mesa-users] Additional profile_column fails to graph in pgstar

For the next release (coming soon!), I've added the ability for pgstar to show user defined columns for both profiles and histories.

It is now even possible to make pgstar grids including plots from astero or binary in addition to the star plots.

Things are slowly coming together.  ;D

It seems that pgstar plotting of profile objects is strictly limited to the set of profile elements found in star/defaults/profile_columns.list. You need not necessarily record an element of that list to plot it in pgstar, but it has to be one of the items found in that file for MESA to know what you want it to try to plot.

That’s what I ended up doing in my case, since live pgstar plotting is never strictly necessary. I agree that it would be convenient to have that option though. Perhaps there is some workaround of which I am not yet aware?
