    Changing the defaults on drawing tools

    Hi,

    Is there a way to change the default parameters on drawing tools in NT8?

    For example, I click on the line tool and select horizontal line. The line always draws as a 2pt blue line.

    I can select the line properties and change them (make it a yellow 1 pt line, for example), and i can save those changes as a template. But to use that template I have to first draw a 2 pt blue line, select the line, select properties, click on template, load, select my yellow template and then apply it. That is a lot of mouse click just to get a 1 pt yellow line!

    Is there any way to change the defaults so that each time I select the line tool, it draws a line based on the last set of selected parameter (e.g. a 1 pt yellow line)?

    Thanks

    Hello ralett,

    To save your settings as the default after making changes in the line properties window click Apply then save the template with the name Default with a capital D and no extra spaces or characters.

      Hi,
      Appears the IsGlobal setting does not get saved to the Default template file. Any suggests/workaround to save the IsGlobal setting also in Default template file?

      Regards

          AnkaS are you referring to the "Attach to" option not saving as a part of your default template? If so can you please go to the Control Center->Help->About and confirm you have version 8.0.23.2 installed. If you do not please upgrade with the steps below.
          • First, copy your license key from NinjaTrader under Help> License Key then exit NinjaTrader
          • Click on the link: https://ninjatrader.com/PlatformDirect
          • Enter your license key and press Submit
          • Select 'Download'
          • Critical: Before running the installer, ensure NinjaTrader is closed.
          Please let me know if the Attach to option then saves as a part of your default template.

            Hi Chris,
            I am running NT vs 8.0.22.2, which is a pretty recent build. Yes, I am referring to property "Attach To".

            Regards

            Vivek

              There was an issue reported with this feature in a previous version of NinjaTrader which has been resolved in version 8.0.23.2.

              Please let me know if you continue to see the same behavior with the current version installed.
