Hello,

In the current version there is no easier way to turn the Snap Mode on/off.

In the next MC versions, though, we will have a separte icon for the Snap Mode.

Apart from that, we are going to change the program's interface and it will have customizable bars.

Hello Nick,

Just wanted to make sure that I got this right:

If, say, a chart has 100 bars and in the last section 30 bars are displayed: the first visible bar in that last section will be bar 71. Is that what you mean?

Do you happen to know which command in TS identifies this bar?
