Hello

I was wondering if anybody knows of a way to copy all of the horizontal support and resistance lines plus trendlines you can draw on a chart that is big and copy it on to a chart that is small. In other words, I want to have 2 charts of the same instrument with the same support and resistance / trendlines without having to redraw them out twice.

are these levels stored internally or can we see them through looking around in the files in the folders?

thanks
Spencer

Just save the workspace and the workspace XML file will have them all. Then simply move workspace to other Ninja...

in NT 7 this should work somehow as i heard.

you can "fix / store" drawobjects in the chart-template or so - maybe a NT7-user can explain it a bit.
its not transfering but storing in a template i think.

or look at NT-forum - NT -Ray posted some videos explaining new NT7-features some time ago - there i saw this.
maybe also in the futures.io (formerly BMT)- Ninja-webinar - you can review it here.

in NT6,5 its not working.

My bad. I mis-understood the question.

Yes, right click on those lines and there is a option to attach those drawing object with various options. If you attach the drawing object to ticker (without timeframe), it will appear in all charts for the same ticker.

This is NT7 feature... Enjoy!

Cheers,

To my best understanding, drawing objects are not stored with templet, only indicators and chart settings.

Hi everyone

thanks for responses. yes, that feature works in Ninja 7 to attach line to another chart is ok if you set it before you mark 20 horizontal lines, etc.. does not do much good after the fact since it takes each one at a time and not a group option.

I really do not see why they dont have ( or at least I did not see it) a simple intuitive user friendly feature like Tradestation in which you can just simply "copy" the entire chart and past it. then it does not matter when I add the lines and can always copy and past the chart and then just change the time frame to a lower one.

there is nothing more annoying than having to draw out 30 support resistance lines on 3 different charts for several markets. anyway, enough compaining:-)

thanks for the input. this feature in ninja 7 will help when the rest of my vendors get with ninja 7. until then, some of my charts are on ninja 6.5 and some are on ninja 7. trading doms are on 7.

thanks
Spencer

suppose you have drawn a horizontal line. double click on it and the properties dialog box pops up. in the General tab click on the Attached to dropdown menu and select <symbol name>(All Charts). this would do the trick.

the same is however not possible programatically.

It should be possible through workspace XML file. May be I can write and app which can manipulate the XML file. Just close the workspace, use the app to propagate chart objects across the charts and then re-open. Sounds good?

for me this is also a big lag in NT - because having objects stored in the workspace is a good feature for an existing workspace but not very helpful for working with diff. workspaces - because you cant merge them.

a chart with drawings that i have somewhere i absolutly cant add in an existing workspace - very bad.

so for me there should be a choise for beeing able to "enable / disable" "store drawobjects in the chart-template".
That would be the killer-feature.

charttemplates are .xml , like workspaces too - so it shouldnt be a problem -- may this is an idea for "manipulation on .xml.files" !

but fur shure also the "copy+past" like spencer explains - would be a great great help in my eyes.

Ok - I've some idea for someone with excellent NT coding skills.

Few months back I saw a trendline alert indicator; that was iterating over all chart objects (lines, rays) and register them for alert. Same strategy can be applied here.

My proposed indicator will periodically read all 'chart objects' from given chart and save/merge (serialize) the details into a study file (one file per symbol - or configurable in indicator setting). The same 'study file' can be used to re-draw those 'chart objects' on different chart for same symbol.

Lets also throw this problem on main NT forum. Some staffs are pretty knowledgeable and helpful. We may get lucky...

I had requested an enhancement where you can copy/move charts to different workspaces OR be able to save individual charts outside the confines of a workspace. But they have their hands full to even think of enhancements.

aviat,
- well - its nothing that NT-guys want to integrate as a function - so they say : "we give it to our further list ...... blabla" - we know this talk yet from somewhere

but maybe we can get help there for coding this as "officialy un-supported function" .

Ninja Ray promised that in the officialy un-supportedcoding area they will give more help then in the past !
he personaly gave this promise here at his futures.io (formerly BMT)-webinar.

he also said they hired a coder especialy for this unsupport things + that they offer a place at the forum where guys can get support for officialy unsupported stuff + ideas !
trhats the place the project has to go!

and that is a point now where we can test if they really do what they promise !

so TraderSU, if you get the answer : sorry but this is not supported - please make them remember what Ray himself told us , not only told us, he promised that - live here at futures.io (formerly BMT) ! -- his webinar is recorded BTW
