Anyway to have multiple hotkeys for a drawing tool?

Hello all,

When I am going through and back testing I use the line drawing tool and the rectangle box the most. I color code them differently depending on if it is an uptrend, downtrend, long, short.....etc. My question is this......Is there a way to have numerous hot keys assigned to the same drawing tool but each hot key draws the drawing tool in a different color, size and border type?

For example, I want to draw a blue rectangle box with solid lines so I press Alt+W and a blue rectangle box with solid lines appears. Next I want to draw a red rectangle box with dashed lines so I press Alt+E and a red rectangle box with dashed lines appears.

This would save time rather than have to go change the default blue rectangle box with solid lines to a red rectangle box with dashed lines when I need to draw a red rectangle box rather than a blue one.

If you search there may be other indicators around that already do this, or other ways of using SendKeys or Ninja Templates to achieve a similar effect, but I don't know them.

However, I really like the idea and will be adding it into KeyTrader as it's a perfect fit with what I have in place in there. I'm thinking 4 to 6 configurable 'things' that can be set for drawing by the user with the sort of parameters you describe and attached to a function, alt or control key. I'll give KT user modes for Drawing, Trading or DrawingAndTrading. That's a first cut plan anyway. It might get more magic added later...

Travel Well
