Usability enhancement request

Post by vtrador » Tue Sep 28, 2021 7:30 am

Hi Earik,

A few things missing in W59 when doing charting:
1. Ability to define or customize hotkeys for built-in actions
-- it's better to have something simple like A, B, F, Ctr+A,
-- Spacebar for temporary enabling BigHand for drag the chart, like in Photoshop
2. Ability to define hotkeys for Technical indicators + presets

Those 2 will be huge breakthrough in everyday operations

Hi Earik,

Next usability request: please make shortcuts to apply custom Technical indicators (scripts) to charts.
Current way is very ugly and anti-usable. If there a bunch of scripts, and I use active a couple of them, I must click 5-8 times and do sniper-picking through the list (no search!) to put a script to chart. Which is horrible UX, don't you?

So the possible solution would be:
- hotkeys for specific scripts
- search box in script list
- custom toolbar, to add hot custom scripts there (user tools)

Hi Earik,

Next usability request: chart objects tree inspector, like in TradingView or Optuma.
It's very hard to work with crowded chart, especially to delete object (no Undo!!!) - a guesswork and cursing.
Object tree with dynamic highlight of the selected object (like in Optuma) will be of great help for quick interaction with the chart.

And, of course, Undo action for deletion on chart :-)

Indicators Toolbar > Options > Customize Toolbar
and
RC on open chart > Show/Hide Drawing Tools > Interactive Show/Hide
along with
Drawing Object Inspector

There you have it.

In addition to the way that Todd recommended, you can also set up folder groups for indicators that you use often. Go to a chart, click "Technical", then look for the "Manage Categories" button at the top of that form.
