New improved - yeah right

No. There are a few things I really like in 6.5:
1) with VerticalScale ver 2 (from Pepe on NT forum) I can set my x - y axis however I want and it stays there, and I can pan it up and down (Can this indi be upgraded to work in v7? Someone do it or tell me how - PLEASE!)
2) the mini-data box - the old one had the price where the cursor was pointing - in the new improved one they removed the price and made it more "streamlined" - if it aint broke don't fix it!
3) horizontal grid lines - I could set at 2 ticks - how can I do that now - seems they set the grids to 5 ticks or whatever the programmer feels like
...
If these issues are just due to my ignorance as to how the new version works, someone please educate me.
...
It appears the new CME rules will kill 6.5 anyway.
What a bummer.

I am on NT7 and how found the transition to work fine for me.
#1 - I am not familiar with the indicator so I cannot address this issue.
#2 - I turn on the crosshairs option for the cursor and it shows what price in the right column my cursor is currently at. - This might not work for you but it is an option
#3 - The can be set to your choice. On the right price column, right click and select properties. There you have 2 options to set the horiz grid. You select the grid interval type (in your case - tick) then you select the interval (in your case - 2)

I hope this helps.

I have been using nt7 for a while and am now on the most current version. Working really well for me and using zen-fire. I've had no problems at all. I have it on 3 computers.

@kenz987

I cant help re-write an indicator, but why don't you post it in this thread and see if someone else helps you.

Perhaps anybody has an idea what I can do. Yesterday I tried to upgrade from NT 7.0.1000.2 to 7.0.1000.4. I get an error message when I want to remove an assembly.

Turn OFF selection

When indicators are hit with the mouse they get "selected", little square boxes appear all along the indicator. Is there any way to STOP this behaviour?

Ahem, so I upgraded to SP1 a couple weeks ago and I hadn't upgraded NT because I don't really use it anymore, but I am trying to help someone today and even though 4 says it is compatible with SP1 it is still telling me I have to uninstall SP1 first. Are you kidding me?

Right click on the chart to open 'Properties' and in the "Window" section, set "Allow the selection or drag/drop of chart series" to false. This will resolve your problem !!

thamks

Aregon,
Many thanks - it's these little things that drive me crazy with this new release.
Q: Is there a list of these new "features" somewhere and how they work?
Ken
ps: Title should be THANKS!

Apart from looking at the NinjaTrader Help Guides which I find somewhat laborious, I think it is easier to just ask on the futures.io (formerly BMT) Forum or NinjaTrader Forum.
Sorry I can't be more helpful !!
