Hi Chad

Can you increase the number of storage values please? These are the V#, where numbers can be stored e.g yesterdays values etc. At the moment its limited to 20....... can this be increased?

I believe you can set them to over 500 variables. Go to Setup/User Variables and replace the number 20 with a higher number you want.

Yes, you can have up to 512 V# variables per symbol. And in version 12.2 which will be coming out in beta early next week, we are introducing C# variables. Some more info on these below...

Each chart now has up to 20 C# variables availble to it: C#1 thru C#20. These may be used in the same places as V# variables (typically as variables/periods within Indicator settings) and can now be set by a new button purpose of "Set C# Value". These are similar to V# variables but instead of being instrument-specific, they are chart specific. While each symbol has up to 512 V# variables, now each chart has up to 20 C# variables. Each chart has it's own unique and self contained value of C#1, C#2, etc. Chart_A has it's own value of C#1, and Chart_B has it's own unique value of C#1. A number of benefits: when importing charts, users don't need to be concerned about stepping on existing variables (as you do for V#). The C# values of the exporter of a chart will come across when importing and the importer will have the same C# values for that chart as the exporter. And users can duplicate a chart that makes excessive use of C#1, and in the duplicate set C#1 to something different (using button) and observe charts with different values of C#1, on the same symbol, at the same time. This is not possible with V# variables.
