It use MC beta 2 and I regret not to be able to draw a vertical line crossing all indicators. It would be nice to have the choice : the vertical line is only in the instrument, or goes also in all subcharts.

When you do this vertical line. Make sure Power Language can create this line also.

I am programing my custom system and I need this added to Power Language.
Because this was posted as "Under Review" we decided to buy MultiCharts assuming this will be implemented soon.
Thank you

I second this request to have a format option to make a Time Line extend down to subcharts. I think it would be a good default setting as well. 
As a related time line feature, it would be nice to be able to move a selected time line bar by bar with the arrow keys on the keyboard. When the time lines are global across linked charts, this will be very handy also. Trade Station users would recognize this type of capability with the sticky click vertical cursor in Trade Statation, and could perhaps describe it better than me. In which case you can move it to a new location with a click of the mouse on the screen, or the arrow keys on the keyboard. Maybe this is already a suggestion? thanks.

A new vertical line cursor object that tracks time on all charts with keyboard control to step the line bar by bar forward and backward with synchronized time on all charts would be handy for backtesting without using the data playback. 
Similarly, when using data playback it would similarly be useful to have keyboard control to advance x minutes forwards or backwards. Please add keyboard shortcuts for it.

I am a day trader and put a vertical line down the entire chart to mark entry and another line to mark exit. I use 5 charts and each chart has 5 subwindows. this means I have to draw 25 lines to mark entries and 25 more for exits - 50 total. In any other program I would only have to draw 10 lines each of which would go down the entire chart thru all subwindows. 50 vs 10. Why can't Multicharts put a switch button in the line format window to allow the user to create a line down the entire chart or just down 1 subwindow. Multicharts is the only program I have used which doesn't let you put a vertical line down the entire chart with 1 click.
