Please Remember Price Scale Between Sessions

Postby MidKnight » 03 Sep 2013

Hi there,

I brought this usability issue up about a year ago when I first started using MC.net and it seems the thread has been deleted for some odd reason.

Please, please, please - when the user sets the chart price scale manually it must be remembered between subsequent sessions of MC.net. I am not a systematic trader and as such, trade idea development comes from making sure my charts look the same each day. This requires the same colours, chart layouts across screens, and the same price scale. Every charting package I have used before this has been able to remember the user defined price scale - so should MC.net.

The current implementation is a serious usability flaw for many discretionary traders. Please address this soon. I've waited over a year now for this.

With kind regards,
MK

I have not noticed this issue with saved Workspaces, what is your workflow?

Hi there,

Not sure what you mean....

- open workspaces
- manually slide the price scale so that it is the range I want it to be
- hit ctrl-s
- close down MC.net and reopen those workspaces - the price scales have reverted back to automatic

Is this what you where asking?

With kind regards,
MK

Yes that is what I meant.

You are right this is a bug! I am a scale tweaker, so I never really noticed, perhaps this bug has made me a tweaker. Now its going to bother the crap out of me.

Support can you add this to your bug list. I didn't see this anywhere on the roadmap. I will certainly vote for this feature.

I spoke with support today and Roman said that he would get this added to the bug list.

Thanks, I'm skeptical because:

a) no comment from support about it
b) I brought this up a year ago
c) my thread about this issue was deleted

The current implementation is too tedious for me with all my charts and I'm being forced to look for other alternatives. Quite a shame because I mostly like the programming side of things in MC.net.

With kind regards,
MK

Just checking project management and see no issue so I thought I'd create one here:
