The error with indicators "Message: Error in study "any study" : not enough series length. Bars reference value :104." when opening workspaces and/or changing symbols or resolution is a big inconvenience in using the present beta. If you could release a hot fix for this it would be most appreciated....

If your trading platform correctly displays fractional prices you have to mentally convert from decimal. In my opinion yes this does make it impossible to trade. T...

Desktop position

3.0 Beta does not remember it's desktop position if it is not on the primary display in a multi screen set up. That is if I position MC on another display each time I restart MC it always appears on the primary display. This did not happen in the previous versions.

Workspace switching on alerts

I am using alerts on trend lines to sound an audio alert. In the 3.0 beta MC now automatically switches to the workspace where the alert came from, which is very inconvenient when I'm working on another workspace.

Also when there are multiple windows in a workspace it is not possible to tell which window these new error pop ups come from so I have go through each window to find which studies need to have their status switch back on.
