Confused on API doc

When I am in the editor and click on the left for "API". I expect to be able to type in "ExponentialMovingAverage" to get the docs on that class. Nothing comes up. What am I missing? thanks

You have to search for EMA but that is something you would to search manually first to find it

Thanks Mark it is a QCAlgorithm API search not class search (not class documentation). I'll see if we can make a type look-up via the search tool.

Thanks.

The ExponentialMovingAverage class doc along with all the other indicator classes etc. is in the "Lean" documentation found below.  

I am just getting started with QC, but it seems most, if not all algorithms use "Lean".  Therefore would make sense to include Lean api documentation in the coding terminal along with the other API docs so you don't have to go to a different window to look things up.  Thanks
