  1. I have always found issue when using windows 7 font 125%/150% the latest was windows gadgets did not display when using magnified font. I primarily use the clock gadget to display CET - EST - PST clocks. I have just resolved to use 100% only. i had noticed the above issue as well in MT when using certain drop down menus to customize settings. I didn't report them as I attributed it to system issue on my end. I was experiencing other graphic issues and wasn't sure if it was an MT, "Nvidia" video driver or other local issue. It will be interesting if you are able to resolve this for MT. Until then 100% is my workaround.
  2. Freudian Slip? You do mean MT don't you?

    printing enabled yet?

    Tip: Screen capture / save to file / print http://www.faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm My favorite, ~ $20/lifetime Free apps are available as well, just google a bit / cnet download etc...
  4. Considering IB's historical data limitations, that does not look IB friendly...
  5. Work around: create Chart Template with no Indicators in addition to your normal chart template Templates / Load / "No-indicators" Templates / Load / "normal chart" isn't right-click menu, but achieves your requirement

    in addition to above, RELIABILITY can not be emphasized enough imho access to almost all world markets, equity, futures, commodity's, Forex, etc... Global acct, efficient use of capital, no need to maintain separate accts [futures, equities, forex] ECN Forex excellent execution reliable API reliable data, even in fast markets due to its "snapshot" as opposed to tick by tick TWS is an extremely usefull program, albeit a front end and/charting package is usually employed. [which MT is, "once order entry module is incorporated"] Strict margin control, I feel safe knowing that those with less than optimal risk management won't take the brokerage down [along with my deposits] 24 hr customer service, trading desk - Asian desk, European desk, US desk Just an all around solid, healthy brokerage I could go on, but I think you get my point...

    Protractor tool

    Hi Mike, Thank you very much for considering this feature. 99% of the time the mirrored TL will be manually re-located. What ever is the most consistent with your current methodology works for me. i.e. the mirrored clone is handled similar to how you currently handle copied lines. [Mirrored TL #1] on screenshot. Just think symmetrical angle. upslanting TL = downslanting mirror copied @ or below starting anchor downslanting TL= upslanting mirror copied @ or above starting anchor The idea of the clone snapping to the midpoint between anchors [mirrored TL #2] sounds nice as a dedicated tool, but may have an issue if a freestyle TL is drawn in open space, or drawn as conventional TL.

    Protractor tool

    Intended application: Anticipate Megaphone trend lines [TL]. Request either of two options: #1, Ability to mirror a trend line [TL]similar to clone, only reversed angle - simplest solution #2, Ability to measure angle of trend line's - i.e. 0 -180 degrees from start to end point of TL / horizontal axis as baseline [90 deg] Ref: Percent change tool feature request [add degree''s in cross hair information] ref: http://forums.medvedtrader.com/index.php?/topic/169-percent-change-tool/ ****Current Methods:**** 1, Manual/geometric; Create rectangle on TL - mirror trend line - move into position ** [time consuming, but accurate] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2, On Screen Protractor's, caveat requires running third party app cumbersome. [PIA] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Application example
  12. You must have young eyes. I am well into my 50's and as each year passes I have learned to appreciate larger fonts, contrast and color options. I also have noticed in the past 5 years or so that my eyes have a difficulty with red font/background etc... So the more items which are user configurable for font/color I am always in favor of...
