Holllow cands are hard to see in MC64 when decreased spacing

Postby Tresor » 21 Jul 2012

I switched to MC 64-bit yesterday. I use hollow candlesticks on dark background. There seems to be a difference on how MC 64 handles hollow candlesticks on dark background (compared to MC 32).

The problem is explained in the pictures. I will appreciate the solution.

Did you check to see if your default "hollow candlestick" colors are the same in both platforms ?
Mine don't turn so dark in 64bit.

I tried all different settings including identical colours - all in vein, but I think I found the culprit and I don't seem to know how to fix it. Can you uncheck ''Show candlestick border'' in your version?

My version is 8.0 release, built 5622.

Edit: I was able to uncheck ''Show Candlestick Border'' from Candlestick style.

BTW. When I switch to sheer candlesticks or OHLC ar or to HLC Bar I get perfect grey coloured compressed bars.

Still looking for the solution.

Hello Tresor,

Please attach the workspace you are using for reproducing this behavior.
Is the problem reproduced at once when you open the workspace or there are additional steps to reproduce it ?

This issue is confirmed. It will be fixed in MultiCharts 8.1 Beta 1.

The workaround is to set light grey color for Candlestick Wick Component. In this case Hollow Candlestick bar with decreased spacing will be light gray.
