    How to move the Order marker label and increase its font size/bold it?

    How can we move up/down the orders labels?

    How can we increase the orders label font size or/and bold it?

    I don't see any extra option on the syntax of ExitLongStopMarket() for example.

    Hello Cormick,

    Thanks for your post.

    It looks like your link is broken however I do see an attached picture. We do prefer that you directly attach your pictures/documents.

    You can change the charts font which includes size. This will change the execution marker text and all other text on the chart. This can be done by right mouse click on the chart and select "properties". In the properties window is the "Font" selection. There are no means to specifically change the execution font only.

    There is no means to move the execution text up or down. You do have the option (and hot key Ctrl and e) to turn off the markers and text, or just the text, at any time.

          There are no means to change the marker size of the Execution Text and Marker or Execution markers only selection of Executions.

              Would be better to allow users to customize it and move it away from the price series, same as indicators arrows etc. Can you submit the request to development please? It would help for 4K.

                  Hi CambidianT,

                  Paul will let us know later.
                  Usually for any request we just have to submit a vote by just posting our request in the relevant/current thread (example
                  https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...922#post810922)
                  Let's wait on Paul's next reply!

                    Hello Cormick and CambodianT,

                    1) "same as indicators arrows etc." - There exists an add-on that you are welcome to download that provides the ability to "resize" the draw markers such as dots, square, arrow, and triangles however this does not address the execution markers as they are handled in a section of code that is not exposed. Here is a link to the add-on if this is of interest: https://ninjatraderecosystem.com/use...rtmarkersplus/ Please note: The NinjaTrader Ecosystem website is for educational and informational purposes only and should not be considered a solicitation to buy or sell a futures contract or make any other type of investment decision. The add-ons listed on this website are not to be considered a recommendation and it is the reader's responsibility to evaluate any product, service, or company. NinjaTrader Ecosystem LLC is not responsible for the accuracy or content of any product, service or company linked to on this website.

                    2) Execution Markers, you do not want to move them away as the right and left-facing triangles are necessarily used to show the actual entry/exit price levels, so they must stay at those levels. There is an existing feature request identified as SFT-2174, "Ability to adjust the size of drawing objects such as arrows, dots, triangles, etc. (including plot execution markers)". We will add a vote for each of you to this for the execution markers side.

                    Feature Request Disclaimer
                    We receive many requests and cannot reasonably implement all requested features or changes. Interest is tracked internally and if enough interest is tracked, it would be weighed against how feasible it would be to make those changes to consider implementing.
                    When new features are implemented, they will be listed in the Release Notes page of the Help Guide. The ID number will be different than the internal feature request tracking ID, but the description of the feature will let you know if that feature has been implemented.

                        Hi Paul,

                        Thank you for the reply.

                        I was referring to the orders labels — not the left-right arrows CambodianT was asking for.

                        To avoid the overlapping issue shown in post #1 above:
                        Thanks for the submitting of the feature request.

                          Hello Cormick,

                          Thanks for your reply.

                          In the screenshot, what is the source of the text on the exit?

                          Can you show me a screenshot of the code or strategy builder screen that generates that text?

                          Thanks in advance.

                            Yes, thanks to the power of archiving everything (so users and technicians can benefit from it going forward, for the next forum update):

                              The intent of signal names is to tie orders together and to help clarify what method issues the order (regarding the text of Text and markers). If you are not going to tie orders together with the signal names you could use a C# escape sequence of \n.

                              For example EnterLong("\n\n\n\nThis is the entry Text\nLine2\nLine3");
