K format on Volume profle

For consistency and screen space it would be clearer to lose the K and use the decimal point all the time.

The option to only display to 1 point not 2 would be useful for high volume conrtracts

As far as i can see it is only possible to apply a divisor to the scale and not to the delta/ bid ask values.

For high volume contracts such as ES the number of bars usefully displayable is therefore limited.

There is a scaling issue when trading contracts like Copper which trade in .0005 increments.

Setting the scale at 10,000 hasn't been a problem in the past.

For volume profile the colour blocks only form 1/5 of the price leaving no space for the Bid ask numbers to be displayed.
