Playback control = terrible

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the terrible Playback (Market Replay) control. If you want to playback a certain day, you have to 1) advance the start date to the day before 2) advance the end date to the exact morning you want and then 3) right click and choose Go To to punch in the date and time. A terrible UI.

On a related note, does Ninjatrader actually read this thread or are we all just complaining? Haha.

I first posted on this in the "Ninjatrader 8 not ready for prime time" thread on May 4, 2018. I also posted a feature request on the Ninja support site about that time. I was not actually the first to post a feature request on the problem. You can read the post and a number of follow-ups here: https://futures.io/ninjatrader/41237-ninjatrader-8-not-ready-prime-time-24.html#post678668

Obviously, NT has to set their priorities about what they fix first, and they have had a lot to do. Also obviously, they have not fixed this issue. I assume it's not a high enough priority, which is affected to some extent by the number of votes given to the request (you can check out how to vote in those posts, if you want to.) They also clearly have to make a technical decision regarding where the most bang for the buck lies, in terms of allocating resources and time.

But obviously, we can do the same. (I'm on Sierra Chart now. Not just because of replay, but it was a -- small -- part of it.)

For the record, I still think NT is a good system, but you have to weigh the pros and cons of what's important to you.

Bob.

Ah, figures I wasn't the only one, thanks for the backup, Bob.

I actually enjoy using NJT as I've found them to be quite responsive once you've identified the issue as a bug. They usually get it out on the next release.

But when it comes to redesign stuff, I can see it from their point in that it would take some time to do that.
