More realistic figure is my preference. It doesn't make much difference with futures (generally tight spread) but can be significant for small cap stocks.
Since you mentioned a sooner than expected beta 2: DOM - it needs to be a container within the workspace (like chart, scanner, position tracker windows)
Otherwise, it's an annoying separate app window that is in the way of other apps when minimizing or moving MC.
I think the DOM has to be separate like it is now. I have my main MC window minimized, and charts and DOM undocked.
So the best features are the ones where the user can choose his own preference

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

I agree, users should be able to pick - that's the spirit of MultiCharts. The challenge is NOT to create so many features that users drown in them. In the case of PnL, I think we will allow both modes of calculations (stored in IB broker profile), and you can choose which one you like.

The following 2 users say Thank You to MultiCharts for this post:
The DOM should have the same capability as the other objects and how they interface with the workspace.
You want it separate - separate it. You want it in a workspace - dock it. It's the same functionality that is available elsewhere.
To state "I think the DOM should be separate like it is now" is ignorant and unhelpful. Not everyone operates the same way and the ability to dock is something that should have been offered from the beginning. Otherwise, what was the point of workspaces?
