I would like to have multiple icons for drawing trendlines. Each icon would have different settings:
(i) blue
(ii) red
(iii) normal
(iv) extended
(v) etc
I suspect other traders might want to have multiplce icons for other tools like vertical lines or arrows as requested per this thread: http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=7211&hilit=trendline

Steps to reproduce this issue

No need to reproduce. Please look at the picture 'Quiz' to see how hard a life of a trendline trader is.

MC Team - This is one of very nice features to have to draw lines as needed with different presets. Would you please review and see if you can implement this feature.

Would it be better to have up to 10 configurable trend line templates as a tool bar?

Yes, it would be better. In this ''10 configurable templates'' could I (i) place 10 icons of trendlines in the toolbar (each representing a different template) or would I have to (ii) select them from a dropdown menu? Opition (i) is better.

Yes, a new toolbar with 10 icons for 10 configurable templates.

I confirm, this would be fantastic to have it the way you propose and much better than what I requested.

I have seen the picture. It is not ass good as having icons on a toolbar.
How about (just an idea) availing 10 icons on a toolbar that users could customize according to their needs? E.g. One could set 8 template-icons for trendlines, and 2 icons for horizontal lines.
