Show Context Menu when right click in time chart

Thanks for providing the great feature "Download a time chart as a CSV file"!

I used this feature, and it's a very nice feature, but I think it would be better if you could improve the UX a bit.

I selected the range that I wanted to download on the time chart and right clicked.
What I would like to see here is a context menu that would allow me to select a menu item to download the selected range.
However, in reality, "unselected range" behaivor occurred. This was so frustrating.

I understand that a menu icon appears at the top of the chart, but I find this behavior unintuitive.
By all means, when performing any operation on a selection, I would like to see the following flow: 1. select the selection->2. context menu appears->3. menu selection.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestion! We agree that the UX here could be improved. We plan to revisit this functionality as part of a broader UX overhaul for custom dashboards in the future.
