    NT8 chart template doesn't save indicators (panel 2) drawing objects

    Hello vindiou,

    Thanks for your post and video.

    The video shows an RSI in Panel 2 and then you are drawing lines on panel 2. You save the chart template, switch to another template then switch back to the saved template which shows the RSI in panel 2 however the draw objects(lines) are not there. This is expected behavior as a chart template does not save the draw objects. The chart template will save Chart properties, chart panel properties, and indicator settings. Please see: "How to save a Chart Template" https://ninjatrader.com/support/help..._templates.htm

    Draw objects such as lines would be saved as part of the workspace that the chart is in when you save the workspace.

      Thanks Paul for your answer. Any reason why NinjaTrader chose not to save the drawn objects in the chart template?!

        Hello vindiou,

        Thanks for your reply.

        Yes, chart templates can be applied to any instrument so draw objects, in general, are related to price which would not apply the same to all instruments.

          Thanks, IMHO that there should be 2 choices for saving a chart template: with or without objects. Examples:
          1) You draw horizontal lines (always the same levels) that you use for alerts on an oscillator.
          2) You have plenty of drawn objects on your chart: it is much faster to modify them (if they come from another instrument) rather than drawing them all again, one by one from the menu + their settings. Moreover, you may forget to add an object you had on a previous chart...

          BTW, I've just noticed that if you add an alert on this horizontal line in the oscillator, the alert is saved in the template but not the horizontal line. So when you restore the chart template, you have an alert on a non-existing line object?!

            Hello vindiou,

            Thanks for your reply.

            I will write a feature request to save drawing objects with chart templates and will update this thread when I have further information. Writing a feature request does not mean the feature will be implemented but does let program management be aware of client requests.

                Hello vindiou,

                Thanks for your reply.

                The feature request to save drawing objects with chart templates already exists so your vote was added to it.
                The assigned feature request is SFT-2354, "Chart template Include Drawings objects".
