Working with Chart Objects
Chart Objects represent various Data Series, Indicators, or Drawing Tools which have been configured on the chart. There are several ways to interact with these chart objects in order to control their behavior and appearance.
Drag and Drop
A Data Series or Indicator can be dragged and dropped to various areas of the chart to quickly change which panel it displays.
Left mouse click on a chart object within a chart and drag and drop to any of the following areas of the chart:
When you drag a selected object to a valid region on the chart, a blue band will appear acknowledging you that by dropping the object at this particular location, a new panel will be created.
Objects within a panel can be adjusted by paint order to appear behind or in front of another chart object.
You can change the z-order (paint order) of all chart objects within each individual panel. Each chart object is assigned a level value which informs you where in the paint order the particular object resides. As a rule of thumb, there are as many levels on a panel as there are chart objects on it. For example, if you had a Data Series and a simple moving average indicator on a panel, there would be two painting levels. Level 1 is the top most level which means that any chart object on Level 1 would be painted above all others. Continuing our example, if the Data Series was on Level 1 of 2 and the simple moving average was on Level 2 of 2, that would mean the Data Series would be painted on top of the Data Series.
The image below depicts a "Rectangle" drawing object set at z-order Level 3 of 3, which is behind both the Stochastics indicator (Level 2 of 3) and the ES 12-09 Data Series (Level 1 of 3).
To adjust the z-order:
