    NT7 Feature Request - better horizontal chart scaling using scroll bar handles

    After using NT for quite some time, I have a couple of suggestions that would IMO greatly enhance user experience with NT charting:
    1. Implement horizontal chart scaling (compressing/decompressing bar spacing and width) by using handles on the horizontal scroll bar (stretch/shrink). I find this method so much more user friendly than the current NT approach (i.e. left and right mouse click and drag on the time scale).
    2. Currently - when horizontally scaling out - at certain point the bars start piling up one on top of another and the chart gets ugly. The "bar width scaling" is not quite right - the bars should become progressively more narrower when scaling out.
    3. Enable global user-defined default "Bar Width" and "Bar Spacing" parameters.
    4. Enable "quick reset" to the user-defined global default parameters.
    I have a very high respect for the Ninja Trader - you guys are doing fantastic job here. However, the horizontal time scaling is a little bit frustrating experience for me - especially after switching to NT from the free QuoteTracker (www.quotetracker.com). Pls. check how smoothly is the time scaling implemented there.

    I look forward to the new NT7 version!

    Hello betaride,

    Thank you for your post.

    I will forward this to our development team for future considerations. I know Chart scaling enhancements are going to be made in NinjaTrader 7.



    I have provided a link below to the public announcement of NinjaTrader 7 which includes a section that goes over new features and improvements.

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

      Hello NT Support,

      Re: quote above regarding quick bar width adjustment in NT 7

      I do not think this feature is available yet, is it? I think it would be extremely useful to have it. Saving and applying a Template does not do the trick (well, it does, but it creates other problems).

      Thank you,

        Hello,

        I will check with development to make sure that this is still on the suggestion list and add another vote for it.

        Thanks for posting!
