Hello,

Just to let you know, here with MC 11 I have some serious cursor display lag as soon as there are signals on a chart. See attached video.

Henry,

This is not Beta any more right? 11.0 official release?

If I download and install the newest version - it will overwrite the oldest without erasing my Signals and Indicators right?

yoyotrader,

while this is usually the case, you still might want to do a backup of your studies before installing a new version of Multicharts. Simply export all studies, this doesn't take more than a minute and it's better to be save than sorry when it comes to your studies.

Regards,

ABC

Hello yoyotrader,

That is correct, it is 11.0 official release. When you update MultiCharts it always keeps all your personal data preserved, but as ABC mentioned above - doing a backup of your user data before update is a good practice. In this new version you can backup your data with ease and you can also configure the Scheduler to have it done automatically for you. https://www.multicharts.com/trading-sof ... pplication

Hello Mydesign,

Thanks for reporting. Our engineers are analyzing this case.


Any progress on this bug ? FYI it also affects chart window redimensionning: very very slow display refreshing...

BTW, I really like the new 3D optimization chart. Much better better than previous one ;-) You forget to mention it on the "What's new" page, though it's worth mentionning.

Hello Mydesign,

At the moment this case is targeted to MultiCharts 12, since the issue is not a trivial one.

This is very bad news. MC 11 is just unusable at the moment. Saddly I am forced to go back with MC 10 :(

Thanks Henry,

One other question - was cause of the above cursor glitch ever found? Specifically, will it happen whenever there is ANY signal in the chart?
I noticed it does not happen on the stock demo workspace charts and signals

yoyotrader, it does not happen to all users, but in case you experience this behavior - try making the chart smaller to improve the cursor speed. The fix is targeted to MultiCharts 12 and at the moment we cannot provide more details on the matter.

Re: MULTICHARTS 11.0 RELEASE--is slow to load

Postby PD Quig » 21 Sep 2017

I upgraded to 11.0.14941.400 this afternoon.

The first time I started MultiCharts it took probably 2-3 minutes to load all my workspaces. So, I shut it down and did four more starts. Average load time: 1 min 40 secs.

I uninstalled and reinstalled 10.0.14417 and ran four start-up tests: Average load time: 15 secs

I plan to remain on 10.0 for the foreseeable future.

BTW: when I rolled back to 10.0, all my chart bar types were messed up. Minute and range charts were reset to OHLC from candlestick, and renko charts got changed to renko from candlestick. That was not expected.

Hello PD Quig,

We are sorry to hear regarding this performance drop. In order to study this behavior please send us your MultiCharts environment:
Go to Help tab->Feedback (or Windows Start menu->All programs->MultiCharts64->Feedback).
Select all options, except for dumps and historical tick data.
Please also email a screenshot of your PC specs to me directly or to support mailbox.

Re: MULTICHARTS 11.0 RELEASE - not all Volume processed

Postby asyx » 23 Sep 2017

Hi.

Some days ago I installed the latest version.
With the new version suddenly Cumulative Delta e.g. on a tick chart and on the 5 min chart were different.
Also when you look at CL on the 5 min chart and the volume which occured at each candle, you see this week a lot of candles where the volume is 10 k and more.
In real time most candles were with volume of just 5 k and lower. Only after a reload MC showed the correct volume per candle.
This happend every day the past week.

In older version I never had this kind of problems. Could you please check?

Regards

Hi Henry

I will also be contacting you for the MC 10 download link. I have had multiple issues with MC 11, as listed below.

1) It does not load IQFeed data properly. Every time I start MC 11, I get an error message "Data feed couldn't be loaded". This message occurs for every workspace within the desktop I am loading.

2) It loads slowly compared to MC 10.

3) It does not shut down properly. I have to go in to task manager and shut down 3 processes every time. While previous versions occasionally have this problem, MC 11 seems to happen every time.

4) When I reload a chart, all charts in every workspace go blank. Charts will not repopulate with data. I have to shut down MC 11, go in to task manager and shut down 3 processes, then restart MC 11.

Since I don't see any new features (other than maybe the backup features) that are critical to me, going back to MC 10 is a no brainer.

Hi Henry,

I've just upgraded to the new MC 11 RC3. Everytime I try to close a workspace MC crashes (I tried to send the application error message via MC) ...

Is there a way to roll back to RC2?

Anybody else having the same issue?

Thanks!

I don't have that problem ( I tried it a few times) but if you want to go back to a previous version, run the "current version" and it will give you the option of repairing or removing it. Just don't have it remove your data. (also an option).

Update: it seems to work OK if I don't call it on every bar in minute or tick data for debugging.

As a great plus, the syntax highlighting seems to work great on large scripts ( greater than 500 lines). It's a very nice improvement.

The slowdowns on charts with signals applied is making MC11 unusable for me. Am wondering why isn't everyone suffering this issue?

This issue has been resolved in MultiCharts 11 Release 2. So the current version Release 3 has it addressed already.

Just installed MC 11 release 3 (I was previously running MC 10), mostly to get a more advanced Walk Forward report.

My impression is that while the MC 11 WFO report is certainly nicer than the table we had before, in my opinion it's still does not provide enough information to evaluate the process, and doing an export to excel and performing analysis there is required in the same way it was required in previous versions (it is easier to export the data though. In previous versions we needed to use "select all" and then "copy" and paste into excel).

May I suggest future versions include a similar report to the Strategy Performance Report or a simplified version of it, made up of the Out-Of-Sample data. That would really be a killer feature. The current Summary only includes Min, Max and Average values per period. It will save a lot of time in exporting and analyzing the results elsewhere.

I was positively impressed from the new interface for 3D Graphs. It's now much easier to move between Net Profit to Return On Account functions etc. If this selection (used for the y-axis) could be directly on a side/top panel instead of in the 3D view settings, it would be even better. I normally check at least 2-3 functions when evaluating optimization results.

Customs resolution manager - are there any sample scripts available?

A general question: if I want to move the software to a different folder, while keeping my data, what is the best way to do it?
