Can the data display in the cursor box be expanded to show not only the current : O/H/L/C change, %change but also values for the technical indicators that belong to the bar ( rsi, moving averages, bollinger bands etc) ? If so how ? Thank You

No, it's impossible.

Thanks. Could you put that in the user suggestion box? It would
save a lot of shifting around to find and log values

In 4x, this was called the "Data Window". I want it too, but it's not going to make 5.5 or 5.6 :(

ouch
ok let me try something else : is it possible to view a strategy chart in data format ( ohlc and all associated indicators including volume) rather than as a graph? It would be most useful to be able to view all the attributes of a bar at one glance

Anything's possible, just like the Data Window.

You can also copy the price data and paste it in Excel to see all plotted data in its numeric representation.

You could save all the data series inlcuding OHLCV and indicators for each bar to a text file.

... which is equivalent to copying and pasting it, though by exporting you can do it in a batch process.

That reminded me how easy copying values to clipboard can be when using a static method from Community.Components:
