    chart lines...

    Hi...

    I have 4 charts (weekly, daily, 240m & 60m) and they have show global objects selected...

    I have horizontal lines to add to all charts...

    I want to do the following:

    1. Add horizontal lines to weekly chart which show up on the other charts...
    2. Add lines on the daily chart which only show up on the 240m and 60m charts as well.
    3. Add lines to the 240m chart which only show up on the 60m chart as well.
    4. When I add horizontal lines to 60m I want then to only show up on the 60m chart...


    Is this possible on NT8?

    Hello,


    Thanks for writing in.


    Drawing objects in NinjaTrader 8 can can be configured to apply to a single time interval or to all charts for a specific instrument however, they cannot be assigned to specific time intervals.


    Though this feature your first goal can be achieved.


    To enable horizontal lines for your weekly chart which show up on all other charts:
    • Click on your drawing object on your weekly chart so it is highlighted.
    • Right click on the object once it is highlighted and select 'Properties'.
    • Under properties, adjust the selection for 'Attach to' to 'Instrument name (All Charts).
    • Select 'OK' to apply the changes.

    As the other 3 specify specific drawing objects for charts of various intervals, the easiest way to do so will be to create templates for your drawing objects and then apply them to each chart as necessary.
    • To do so, click on your drawing object on your chart so it is highlighted.
    • Right click on the object once it is highlighted and select 'Properties'.
    • Under properties, select Template > Save.
    • Enter a name for your drawing object template and select 'Save.
    • Click 'OK' to apply the changes

    To apply your template to the other charts, please complete the following steps

    • Navigate to each other chart you wish to apply the drawing object and create a similar object
    • Click on your drawing object on your chart so it is highlighted.
    • Right click on the object once it is highlighted and select 'Properties'.
    • Select Template > Load > Template Name > Load
    • Select 'OK' to apply the changes and update the object
    • Repeat these steps for each object you wish to replicate

    Be sure to save your Workspace after making these changes by selecting the Control Center > Workspaces > Workspace name > Save

      thank you

      thank you for getting back to me...

      Shame there wasnt an option to add drawing objects to charts by name? Instead of only applying to the current chart or all charts.. Is this a feature that might be in later versions?

      cheers
