Subject : OT Remember Chart # of Bars, Sizing & Other Stuff

Post #19138

With OTRT, I have many charts open, both tabbed & floating, and I don't want them all showing the same number of bars, but OT only let's me have one standard chart period selection for all charts. Yes I can change the number of bars manually for each chart, BUT AT MARKET OPEN OT RETURNS ALL THE FLOATING CHARTS TO MY STANDARD SETTING, in my case 850 bars. This is proving to be a real problem for my RT trading.

Premarket I SIZE all my charts the way I like them (without premarket feed and using only standard hours data feed), some 850 bars (my chart period setting), some down to 50 bars. At the moment the market opens, OT resizes all the charts to my standard chart period settings, i.e., the premarket chart sizing setup that I customize each day gets returned to my default 850 bars, and slams all my bars to the HRE. Instead of focusing on the market, in the first few minutes, I am fiddling with each of my charts, trying to get them so they show the correct layout that works for me for trading.

ALSO, THE EXACT POSITION of the bars in the window gets reset at open to the HRE. So if I have moved the bars over 2 inches from HRE, all the charts get moved back to the HRE at open. This also needs to be fixed.

Each floating & tabbed chart should be able to retain their individual layout customization between OT startup and shutdown; and not reset all the charts at market open.

Thanks for your help,
Curtis

I second the suggestion. When we go to the trouble of customizing the display in ANY way, then OT should remember that and not make us redo it.

Barry, do you consider this a "bug" or a "feature request"? It's bugging me ;)

Thanks,
Curtis

I renew my request for this feature request as laid out in my first post in this thread.

Can this be elevated to the correct person for consideration in the next OT update, since this request was made back in 2011 (and I''ve had to deal with this every single day that I''ve traded with OT). It is a real pain in the neck!

Thank you,
Curtis Cooper

I must've missed this back in 2011. I reproduced it all today in my normal & floating charts. It's technically a bug, not a feature request. I'll report it today.
