Index Bar and Maintaining Portfolio size when opening menu bar

Question

As an old QuoteTracker user from the 90s, I got used to monitoring several Indices at the top along with the portfolio.Is there any way to monitor Indices on the Menu bar, or Quick Access bar, etc. Also, I noticed when I open the ribbon tab and close it again, it reduces the size of the portfolio window, and it must be dragged back down to the original size. Is there a fix for that?

As far as the ribbon, that is done intentionally. You can however turn that off.  SETTINGS / APPLICATION / General - Uncheck the box toward the end for "Ribbon Show/Hide Resizes window"

We don't currently have an index panel. We will be adding it. However, do have something similar to the QT Index panel for the time being.  You can do a portfolio with TILE view. Refer to:

The symbols you can enter into that Index Portfolio are (assuming TD Ameritrade source)
$DJI for DJ 30 Industrials
$SPX.X for S&P 500 Index
$COMPX for NASDAQ Composite
$VIX.X for CBOE Volatility Index
$DJT for DJ 20 Transportation
$DJU for DJ 15 Utilities
$TNX.X for 10-YR Note
$TYX.X for 30-YR Bond
$FVX.X for 5-YR Note
$IRX.X for 13-Week Bill

I have configured MT just like I want it but the one feature that I REALLY miss is the "Index Bar" at the top. I see above how to create a workaround for this but it is somewhat clunky to implement. Any idea when the "Index Bar" feature will be added to MT? Thanks!

I just started work on that. It is the next big project to be released after paint bars

I know you guys are always hard at work but is there any ETA  on the "index Bar" (I REALLY miss this)? Thanks!

Jerry, I have to tell you that I'm probably not going to wait much longer for this index bar. It's not that it's so important, it's just that I find myself spending less and less time on MT and have found simple workarounds on free programs like TOS to get the things I used to have on QT. It is soon going to reach a point where it doesn't make sense to be a paying subscriber for something that duplicates other programs I already have.

 

I appreciate the time you spend answering questions and developing new features but  I wish you would have focused more on restoring MT to the functions we were used to on QT - and then add new ones. I wish you well but thought you might want feedback before someone leaves rather than after.

We have not forgotten about the Index Panel. Just had to change direction internally about how to implement it. In fact, I just got the base stuff working last night:

Using TDA as a data source is there a financials index symbol that works with the

index bar? Tried a few...nada. Like $SPF or something.
