    Save the workspace.

      Hello gtsinc,


      Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums.


      Drawing objects are saved as a part of the workspace.
      • Control Center > File > Workspaces... > Save Workspace or Save Workspace As...

          Hello cowboyss,

          For sake of a test, please add one new line to your chart then save by clicking File > Workspaces > Save Workspace. Finally, restart NinjaTrader - does the added line remain?

            strange - I do click File > Workspaces > Save Workspace.
            but when I click exit program it asks me again to save -
            then when open it has saved the lines.

            so how to save them and keeping the program open?

              Hi,

              You can save while keeping NinjaTrader open by simply clicking FIle > Workspaces > Save Workspace after adding the drawing object.

                that approach is not saving the drawing tools.
                Only when I exit the software and tell it to save the workspace for a second time.
                is that how it is supposed to work?

                  Hello,

                  This would save the workspace's settings.

                  What steps are you taking after saving but before restarting NinjaTrader which do not seem to work out? I don't understand what steps you're taking after saving but before restarting.

                    after I click 'save workspaces' I click file > exit
                    it then prompts me, 'do you want to save your workspace'
                    if I click no, when I exit and reopen the software the saved drawing tools are not showing.
                    if I click yes, the tools appear when the software is opened again.

                    the question is, am I needing to double save the workspace - once from the control center and once upon exiting the software?

                      Hi,

                      Thanks for clarifying.

                      Yes, I'd recommend that you do.
