Description

Place 2 instruments on the same chart (ex. data1-eurusd 1min and data2-eurusd 5min).
Use an indicator to place trendlines for both data series, totalling more than 1.000 (it can be Trendlines Automatic with instruments set to 1000 bars back). Now MANUALLY place a rectangle, another trendline or basically any object (the limit lines that get drawn on the chart with "CHART TRADING" are even causing a crash). Everything works fine until you delete the manually placed object. After you delete it, it messes up all the lines deleting them randomly(?) and when you select format drawing you will see it adds new object having at name and Base Data# (null), some high number for the null objects and on subchart Hidden.
I have attached a screenshot.

I have just installed the 7.4 and I can confirm the bug is not present on it.
It is valid only for Multicharts 8 64bit latest beta release.
