Would you please help me with info on how Multicharts will function with Windows 8 and a Touchscreen Monitor?
I am suffering from tendinitis in the elbows and carpal tunnel in the hands from too much time using keyboard and mouse. I'm thinking about getting win 8 and a large touchscreen that is very adjustable in angle of display. It can even lie almost flat. The idea being that I would spend much less time using the mouse and keyboard. Using the touchscreen can be done with the hands and arms in a more natural position.

So here's what I'm looking for specifically:
Can charts be scaled using pinch motions? If not, can it be done in some other way without using the mouse?
Can Trendlines be drawn using touch only? How?
Can I draw a fib retracement using touch only? How?

Those are the 3 primary things that I do in MC.
Thanks for your help.

Hello Kadiddle,

Currently MultiCharts is not designed for touch screens. Probably we will optimize it for touch screen operation in the future if there is enough demand for such functionality.

Thanks. Though not designed for touchscreen, I imagine that I could still make menu selections etc.
Since traders spend a lot of time in front of computers, I imagine that there are many like me in need of touchscreen operation now, or they will in the future.

Clarification please: is 8.5 also compatible with Windows 7 or must one have Windows 8? Thanks.
