Right click on an instrument shown in the market scanner to open a new chart for that instrument - instead of selecting File -> New -> Chart and select the instrument manually.

My wishes for NT8:


I would like to rename my live account, so that I can easily share screenshots without painting over my account number.

Image saving: the default type should be *.png not *.jpg
(I hope this will be fixed in NT7 as well)

Every order should be selectable to increase and decrease it with hotkeys, not only the last one.

Two charts which volume in one window: If you go back in time the last visible price bar are not the same time period than the last visible volume bar.

I would like NT8 to have a macro language similar to MS EXCEL Visual Basic for Applications with a Macro recorder and programmable hot-keys. With that , users could do variety of things like:
Program hot keys
Do custom calculations on any screen field
Restart NT to get around broker's reset times.
Auto answer pop-up messages
Build custom strategy analyzer runs with batch dates
Do portfolio management
Manage strategies
etc ........ the list is endless.

Chart Drawing Tools

Forgive me if this the wrong place to post this message. Does anyone know where on futures.io (formerly BMT) I can find the indicator that puts all the NT 7 chart drawing tools on the chart for easy access?

Drawing Tools:

I need a lot of horizontal segments. With F2 sometimes it's difficult to make the line perfectly horizontal.

A new tool or with the shift key to make it horizontal would be nice.

Preset


I need a preset for backtesting values. This way I would not need to retype my standard parameters again for every new strategy. (Timeframe, Data Series, Slippage, Exit on Close, Default quantity etc.)
