Question about NinjaTrader capabilities

Apologies if I'm lazily asking something here which I could find out myself elsewhere, but …

I've never used NinjaTrader and am thinking about trying it. Please could any NinjaTrader users tell me whether it's possible/easy to set up its chart trading to do this? I want, with a single click (or at the most two, if the second is a confirmation), to be able to enter a three-lot position with a defined stop-loss - the same for all three lots - and for two of the three lots to have a defined take-profit target at which they'll close automatically with the third lot retaining the original SL until I adjust it manually, e.g. by moving it to breakeven.

This can't be asking too much, I'd hope? I'm just "checking first, to avoid disappointment".

Thanks in advance for any replies.

It is quite easy to set up the chart trading by NT with defined target and stop (by using their ATM). Any issue, you shall send mail to Ninja to look for help.

Thanks, Sam.

I was just hoping that someone here might know specifically, before I download NT and start asking "support questions", whether it's possible/easy to enter with one or two clicks a three-lot position and for two of the three lots to have a defined take-profit target at which they'll close automatically with the third lot remaining open with its original SL?
