    Variable Drawn Dash, Dot Lines

    Dear Support,

    This is old, but here is the Issue:

    Drawn by an indicator, horizontal dash and dot line sizes and gaps between them vary depending on the bar width. If one increases the bar width or compresses the chart the indicator drawn horizontal dash and dot lines will eventually become solid lines. Non-horizontal lines and all lines drawn using the drawing tools do not have this issue.

    Try this on a simple candle chart:

    - Attach the PriorDayOHLC indicator - The default OHLC lines are either dash or dot or a combination - Hash lines also impacted
    - Now increase the width of the bars (Alt + Down Arrow) or compress the X-axis. You will notice that the sizes of the dashes and dots and their gaps depend on the width of the bars.

    This is not true for inclined lines or horizontal lines drawn using the drawing tools.
    The sizes of horizontal dashes, dots, and their gaps should be independent of the bar width and unchangeable, same as that in Drawing Tools.

    Cheers!

      Sorry, forgot to mention, try with PlotStyle = Hash.

        Hello aligator,

        Thanks for your reply.

        I am seeing the same behavior when using Hash for the Plot style as you suggested. Do you have a particular need that requires you to use this Plot style? If not, I recommend setting the Plot style to Line, as this will produce a line that appears the same regardless of bar width or bar spacing.

        Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

          Not really, but Hash is there to be used and produces cleaner looking plot style. However using any dash style other than Solid with the Hash plot style will have the same issue.
          Thanks.
