    Volumetric bars for people who drive on the left side of the road ;-) ?

    Firstly, I'd like to say thank you for making an effort in producing a usable set of volumetric bars/orderflow indicators. It's still early days and I have not thoroughly tried them to give some decent feedback.
    However, I have noticed one thing lacking in all 'footprint' types and that is being able to place the buy orders on the left and sell orders on the right. I couldn't work out for a while why I couldn't relate to the current ask-bid plots but I came to the conclusion one day that I live in a British Commonwealth country and I drive on the left side of the road! It makes sense to plot my bids (going up) on the left. Thus I made my own footprints 2 years ago to reflect this need. I simply swapped the values/colors of the plots and added a Boolean to the UI as an option.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Thank you.

    What's really unorthodox for the volumetric bars design is that both bid and ask columns are on the right side of the candle bar. This is really unusual and not intuitive to look at and not seeing a balanced picture. The logical design should be similar to the current super dome with buys and sells on the left and right side of the price, respectively.

    It is beyond logical as to why Ninja decided to code both ask and bid on the same side of the candle for volumetric bars. I brought up this before and the answer was something like that is how we design it. I can't imagine it is a huge task, as you noted, to separate these 2 columns to both sides or the price bar.

    Running out of cents.

          Eric, thank you, but you did just mention the bar location. Please do not forget my original request/suggestion and that was to allow swapping of the buys/sells columns.

            Sorry for the oversight, I will ensure this is also noted as well with the requests.
