List of annotated trace numbers for a channel

I've been trying to figure out how to get a list trace numbers (with the 'Tr' annotation on screen) for a particular channel, using the PNA-X A.09.42.12 firmware.

I tried the 'CALC:PAR:MNUM?' command, but it seems to only return the highest trace number for that channel number. What I want is if I created multiple multiple traces for  a particular channel number, I want to know the entire trace ('Tr annotation) number list, even if these traces are in different windows, since they are tied to the same channel. Note that these traces may be a combination of being created by a program and manually created by hand, so the trace names may be different.  So I can't use 'CALC:PAR:CAT:EXT?', because of the uncertainty in trace names. That's why I'm relying on trace Tr annotation number instead. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.
