If you have ever tried to set a default trendline to anchor on the "close" and then try to apply it to a chart and find that it attaches to a moving average or goes completely out of sight, and no matter what you do, you can't get it to attach to anything else, then you know what I'm talking about.
If you ever look at the status line at the top of your charts and the info is out of order and even though you right click and choose: Format Window>Status Line and try and change the order of the info, then you know what I am talking about.
The Manual Fix: If you right click on the price area to the right of the chart you will see a box that kinda looks like "PriceScaleBefore" (Attached). Notice that the ES data is way down the column and even though it is checked, it is not recognized as being on the the "top" layer. The only way to fix this is to Format>Studies and turn the status off then back on for each indicator in subchart #1.
Now it will look like "PriceScaleAfter" (Attached). Now the status line will have the symbol and description at the front. Now the trendline will snap to the close of the ES data.
Marina, I recommend:
- 1. When right clicking the Price column area and the box pops up, a way to select the price/indicator value that we want displayed (on the right or left side) without effecting anything else.
2. When formatting the status line, when we "move up" or "move down" the items that we have checked, that they will actually change their order in the status line display in the chart window. Currently the "move up" and "move down" are kinda useless.
3. When you format an object (like a trendline) and pick Properties>fixed point or regression, that you can select from anything that is on the chart: ie: H,L,C, Midpoint, typicalprice, any moving average, any channel, ANY PLOT OF ANY INDICATOR AT ALL in the same subchart without first having to mess around with right clicking on the price scale.
4. (This might be the hardest) Keeping these settings between sessions. For some reason MC seems to forget that I set the Price scale box to look like "PriceScaleAfter". After a few sessions it looks like "PriceScaleBefore" and I have to go through the whole rigmarole again.
