GRAIN CHARTS SHOWN IN 1/8ths???

Can anybody tell me how I set my charts so that the scale on the grain charts (Soybeans etc). shows 1 tick as 1/4 , not as 1/8 (which they do not trade in)?

Seems my charts are set up wrong. I use Volume bars, if that makes any difference.

Thanks

Hi vienna, May I ask you why you think that large databases can be easily corrupted? Thank you for clarifications. :-) Please....I have now had long and varied experiences with databases and Multicharts.... that seems to be the one achilles heel of the program. Are you saying no such problems exist...

Sync of databases

Hi, since the long term databases seem easy to corrupt, I do not want to transfer/ update them from one computer to another. Perhaps a naive question: is there a way of using a program such as Dropbox to automatically sync them (I use that program to keep other files on 2 computers updated)? Thanks.

The delay you are talking about occurs because of the slow connection to your database. It depends on the size of your database and only happens on the first start of the program.

No, actually when it first starts it can go in second. If I shut down and start again it can take forever

I guess what I am saying is that when you reduce the scale (get the bars closer to each other- I never look at the chart with the bars so far apart) that clarity disappears. The open and close dashes can not be seen anymore. I dont know how that could be remedied.
