Open Feature request MC-2277

Copy & Paste Text field (not that data within it).

It would be handy to be able to highlight a text box on a chart, press Ctrl+c to put it in a clipboard of some sort then press Ctrl+v to drop it wherever the cursor is sitting on the chart (right under the cursor's tip). Also to be able to press ctrl+v over and over again to drop that same text box in multiple places quickly. Also it would be useful to be able to paste it to other charts within the same workspace.

Reason, I trade by waves and I am sure others do as well. I mark the largest waves with "A" (the tops and bottoms) and the next smaller waves with "B" and the next smaller with "C" etc. Marking them makes it much faster figuring out what is going on during the next viewing of the chart. The current method of copying the same text letter to the tops and bottoms of the waves is pretty slow. This feature would really speed the process up.

End of Request:

Of note: the current method of removing the text is great (just hight the text box and press the delete key). It is very fast.

Another related request (anti-request). Please never NEVER have text copied to other charts automatically. Currently MC is great because it does not do this. I have seen other programs do this and it clutters up charts. It is much better to let the user decide where the text should be placed so they can keep the chart clean looking. If this feature is ever put in it should be an option that needs to be turned on so most users can keep their charts clean. Hopefully no one ever asks for this feature.

I learned just recently that NT has this feature. It can copy and paste a trend line creating a parallel trend line by the use of ctrl+v (very useful and faster). It can do the same with text (again very useful). I guess others have requested this.

It is currently possible to clone drawings in MultiCharts and this function can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut in the corresponding window.

Okay Thanks. I figured out how to create a shortcut to speed up repeat cloning of the same text box. The shortcut does make it faster and I would say it is pretty much as fast as the way I suggested (I created the shortcut as Ctrl+V) . So I guess there is no point in implementing this suggestion.
