[Feature Request] Chart window style

Postby Mydesign » 19 Feb 2020

Hello,

We are in 2020 and still have to deal with these ugly old fashionned windows 7 look & feel chart windows ! Please update them to Windows 10 style, as it is already the case for any other dialog in MC/PT.

This has nothing to do with MultiCharts.

You can configure the look in your Windows setting.

Maybe I am missing something but here is a screenshot of a fresh MC install on a fresh Windows 10 install... This has something to do with MC, no ?

Am I the only one actually bothered by these thick chart windows borders look and feel ? Or do I actually overlook a simple windows setting that can set them as Win10 style ?

Can someone please let me know where to stand ? I am a bit puzzled by TJ's answer...

Hello Mydesign,

Thanks for your suggestion.
Yes, that’s true that the style of windows and ‘minimize’, ‘maximize’ and ‘close’ buttons has changed in Windows 10. But the style of the internal MDI-interface in Windows 10 is still the same as in Windows 7.
To implement this improvement it will be required for us to completely rework the appearance of windows. This will be a very resource-intensive task.
We are planning to do this, but not right now as far as there are higher priority improvements at hand.

You are welcome to create a PM request on this page so we could estimate the actual demand for this improvement among our users. If many people vote for it, we’ll try to reschedule this style change to closer dates.

Thank you Anna.

I understand that it is a low priority item, specially if it requires a lot of resources. It seems that Microsoft deprecated MDI years ago and is not willing to update it anymore... time to move on.

I already made a PM request (link in 1st post). Please vote !
