Description

When I manually adjust the price scale to a specific range, then close down MC.net and restart it. The previously set price scale on a chart is forgotten and reverted back to automatic scaling.
This is super super tedious for discretionary traders that have their eyes tuned to a certain size bar for a given volatility. I have 47 workspaces each with 5 charts on it. To manually go through each of those charts each day and adjust the price scale to what I am used to is tediously unnecessary and poor usability design of this product. The users settings should persist between successive MC runs.

Steps to reproduce this issue

When I manually adjust the price scale to a specific range, then close
down MC.net and restart it. The previously set price scale on a chart is
forgotten and reverted back to automatic scaling.

Andrew,
You changed the status from 'Bug' to 'Feature Request' and I feel this is wrong. On the format instruments window, the price scale is the ONLY ITEM on all the tabs that is NOT SAVED. That is a usability bug and is inconsistent behaviour.

The reason the type was changed is that the behavior you described is expected. it is originally designed to work thiis way.

The design was defective - not good usability. Please fix as the daily tediousness is driving me to drink.....

Another reason to address this is because when I add subcharts to my main price chart - the subcharts will remember the user defined scale adjustment between separate runs of MC.net but as already mentioned, the main chart will discard the user defined entry.
