In terms of not having drawings carry over from one time frame chart to the next, this is very easy to do IF you are working with multiple charts. Meaning, if you have two or more charts in your workspace, say one is the 5 minute and then you have a 30, 120, and Daily, you would just click the cog (Chart Settings) at the top of the charts, go to the first (General) tab, and make sure that 'Synchronize: Drawings' is NOT checked, then click 'Apply' and 'OK'. Then when you place a drawing on one chart, it will not carry over to others in the platform.

In terms of having that occur as you just switch time frames on the same chart, I am not aware of that possibility within the platform, and can not think of any way to program that into a script. I don't think TOS has anything available in ThinkScript that would even allow for that modification.
