This is a BETTER bar timer for NT.

This does the same thing the standard bar-timer that ships with NT does, except its better.

You can customize this one to be as subtle or obnoxious as you want it to be.

FONT CONTROL: It will allow you complete control over the text. This includes font style, font weight, text size, the color, etc.

FONT PLACEMENT: You can place it ANYWHERE on the screen. You can start with the origin points to include any of the 4 corners on the chart.

OFFSETS: Included with that standard placement, you can offset it from the edges by n-pixels. So after you place it, you can adjust it both horizontally AND vertically.

PRETEXT: I created this as I think the standard bar-timer takes up unnecessary space. I myself just like to see the clock-time, as it takes up less space. Here, you can leave it BLANK(default), or add in your own CUSTOM text. So if you like the standard timer, you could input "Time remaining = " for example, and it would be like the standard one. DO NOT USE escape characters, like backslashes in the pretext input field.

See image below for example of adding pretext.

NOTE: Installing this indicator will create a folder called "BTMM," that's where the indicator will be.

---EDIT - V4 20January2020---
As per suggestion of @locky, and wanting to minimize space(purpose of this indie), you can now toggle on independently, and in any combination, the display of Hours, Minutes or Seconds. E.g., No need to show hours for a sub-hour chart.

---EDIT - V3 19January2020---
There was a bug with this indicator NOT saving the text style in templates or a workspace. This bug should be fixed now. Apologies for inconvenience. Thanks to @mrlucky1x for finding this bug

---EDIT - V2 16January2020---
Version two of this indicator will have a box around the text. By default it will be set to transparent, so you won't see it unless you change the color. Opacity setting is also there so you can make the box color more/less transparent.
