I wanted to let you know that I have been able to reproduce by placing the test script, placing a user drawn text object, then saving the user drawn text as a template, and then reloading NinjaScripts. This will set UseChartTextBrush as the template default and the NinjaScript drawn text inherits this when we do not expect it to.

I have reported this for further review and I will update this post/thread as this develops.

This is good news.

Once the problem is fully understood, it is usually easy to fix it.

Thank you again for your efforts!

Hello everyone,

Thank you for your patience.

This is expected to be resolved in the next major release of NinjaTrader 8. I do not have a time frame for release nor can I guarantee implementation at this time.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Has this been fixed in Ver 15, I did not see it in the release notes.

I installed version 15 today and upon first loading of my charts this issue reoccurred, it has been working correctly for days but the update seems to have broken it again.

Hello James108,

This fix is listed in the Release Notes page of the help guide, and when I have tested, I didn't hit the issue. I've attached a picture to help find the note.

Demo - https://www.screencast.com/t/kLLCGPah

Could you confirm if you see NinjaScript drawn text inheriting the Chart Properties' Text color after reloading NinjaScripts on the chart with F5?

It will also be help to confirm that the platform does state in the Control Center under Help > About.

If you are still encountering this issue with R15, could you write in to platformsupport [at] ninjatrader [dot] com with the text Attn Jim and a link to this thread so we can arrange a time to get connected and take a closer look?
