I checked out the link. Do you use it?
It seems it would take >3 seconds to put in a 'HH' or whatever.

Support at Ninja says there is no way:
======================================================
Stephen, unfortunately I'm not aware of another solution as hitting F12 to be able to enter short text note and move it to the desired chart location then.

It might be one of those things that can't be done.

As can be seen in the attachment I've created 2 comments
at the top of the graph. There is no way to keep them there however.
If that could be done...

1) left click desired comment
2) Ctrl-C
3) Ctrl-V
4) drag to destination
5) move arrow away
6) left click

It sounds like way too many things to do, but it's not that bad.
The text in the chart at 20:17:12 was placed there this way.

But there is no way to keep the 2 (or X number of comments) in
the same place, ie. floating, on the chart. As far as I know anyway.

.... hitting F12 to be able to enter short text note and move it to the desired chart location then.

hmm.... have read that somewhere yet i think


Quoting 
But there is no way to keep the 2 (or X number of comments) in
the same place, ie. when floating through the chart.

good news : there is a way to do this

but not a simple one - it can be done with an indicator.
you have to go in the code + put in the text you want to see.
but its not fast changable then.
but if its some text / rules i E that stay fix, that would be a solution for you.

if i have time later, i will have a look if i can find it.

have a look at these 2 - they put text on the chart + hold the possition.

but both concepts need a bit of coding to make them print what you want -
so its no 3-seconds-solution but the text will stay at the same place like this.

So the operations:

1) left click desired comment
2) Ctrl-C
3) Ctrl-V
4) drag to destination
5) move arrow away
6) left click

...can't be applied, is that correct? Maybe I'm not getting what you're saying.

{I might have a good idea to this if one only uses X minute bars, but I just
like Kase right now.}

Is there any type of image file that can be dragged onto a chart,
that is, a file with such and such an extension? If the file is an image,
yet the image is text, that would be fine.

Attachment shows various file extensions from BMP down to TIF.
(The 'HH' at the bottom right would be typical of what I'm thinking about.)

It might be possible to use the SendKeys function of Windows
Script Host regarding this problem. I'm not a programmer so I
really don't know. I also can't find a key that opens the text
window after hitting F12. I know the left mouse button does it.

Maybe this would be useful for people that use A LOT of text in
their charts. The idea would be to have the script run and create
all those common words and phrases towards the top of the chart.

One could then do a copy/paste/drag/drop to where ever it was needed.

After X or XX minutes all those words and phrases would be off the screen
to the left of course. One would have to run the script once again.

After looking at Mikes video I would think that this idea would NOT
be useful for those that use, HH,HL, and a very few other abbreviations.

I think NT makes it hard. Why not just hit F12, "my text" ,move mouse, left click?
