Hot key programming

I would like a hot key programed to bring up a duplicate instance of the line drawing tool on ninja. I using different colors for different things and having to change the color manually is a drag....ninja support said it was possible to program a hot key third party program to perform the necessary steps but I have no idea....anyone know how to do this?

@PandaWarrior

Maybe NT Support are talking about AutoHotKeys.

See https://futures.io/ninjatrader/8373-ninja-autohotkey-order-entrys.html

Start at post #7.

I use this routine for order placement, not as you intend to use it. But then the program is designed to just emulate the key strokes you would make to select a change in colour on the drawing tool anyway - therefore it should be possible.

PW, I wonder if this 'drawing panel' indicator might be helpful for you. It's non-intrusive, and takes up little screen real-estate. It can be found on this fellow's site here: NinjaTrader Indicators :: Richard Todd There are also some other great indicators he's created (mini-charts within the main chart), but alas, not released to the public.

this is the work of genius Pepper I just mess around with it.

after import, select indie PP_channels
a) to draw a line, hit insert key, click point A release mouse button, move to point B click one to finish a line.

b) to change color click on the line then hit * then select color from color template, OK

c) if you still in select channel mode hit +/- to increase/decrease line thickness otherwise click on the line to select it.
