Description

Hi, am not sure if this is a bug but it is not a feature request either. I have installed the latest 64 bit beta 2 version of MC and I observed it to be much slower than the prev beta 1. I have my instruments set to invisible (5 timeframes on the same chart) and I am drawing the bars using plot1,plot2,plot3 and plot4 as I need them to change colors and close width according to some conditions. I have other indicators that draw trendlines and arrows, like 300 on a chart. The only indicator set to update every tick is the one that paints the bars for 1 instrument. Each time a new tick comes in, first the price moves and then the bar gets updated (painted). It is delaying in other words, the plotting is not instant. I have uninstalled beta 2 and reinstalled beta 1 and using the same workspace it updates/paints/plots instantly.
Note: after the charts load up the processor usage is only between 1-10% so I don't believe it is CPU related.
