Ability to lock drawing items movement?

Recommended Posts

It can be quite annoying when you can so easily and very often unknowingly move your drawing items, i.e. Fibonacci trend lines etc. when clicking or dragging your workspace chart. I find myself constantly in this situation and had to re-adjust those lines back to where it should be. Any chance the tech team can make this happen? perhaps a " lock all drawing items" button on the drawing tool bar or an option in single drawing item's customize menu? thanks

Hi

 

There is a workaround that might suit your needs. If you right click on the chart you will see an option to save the layout (as shown in the screenshot). By saving the layout you will save the chart the way it currently displays, this includes drawings and indicators.

 

If you then by accident move a drawing instead of the chart window you would by able to just load your layout again which will place all drawings the way you want them.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that workaround only applies to indicators, not drawing items. I see someone else hasbrought up this issue as well in the main post above, so i guess we'll follow up in there.

Hi  &

 

You are correct, the drawings and the layouts are applied independently so by saving the layout it will not save the drawings, there is another workaround that might help you and that is to hide the drawing from the chart when moving the window.

 

There is some good news though, we are working on a lock drawing feature that will be added to our new platform, there is no specific date for release yet but the feature is coming. Apologies for the misinformation.

 

Thanks

Anton

    • It seems Natural Gas is moving towards the 2500 price area. This seems more likely than 3000 price area at this moment in time. However, Nat Gas, is one of the kings of volatility and it can sharply spike upwards on a moment of severe weather being forecasted which leads to more usage of heating and decreases the humongous supply glut in the US.
