Description

A picture says more then a thousand words.
Thats why i like using markers in my charts.
Each marker has a particular meaning for me, so i get a quick dynamic 'measurement' from the chart in a consistent way.
I have other software I ve been using for years that supports a list of 20 symbols which can be altered in size and color. 
When i was persuaded to convert tot MC i found the plotting marker capabilities of MC below standard.
All the plots look alike.
Would it be possible to allow users to create their own markers ( like an icon 1616 or 2424 ), store it with a specific name, and be able to call it, specify size, color and offset...
Having this implemented would put MC in the lead compared to competitors (no other software offers this yet).
This might be a strong selling point for others considering MC that also like relevant indications on the actual bar of the chart...
