Will Bookmap scale down so that I can fit multiple workspaces on one screen?

Hi Michael,

You can detach, minimize charts, and create a Workspace in Bookmap --watch this video here. However, you can only have one Bookmap Workspace open at a time. To detach and minimize a Bookmap chart window, double-click on a tabbed instrument, then resize the chart from the edges. To save space, consider using only one Bookmap column in a chart. The smallest size for a Bookmap chart is 636x373 pixels. I hope this helps you.

regards,

Bruce

Hi Bruce,
Made a quick video to describe some ideas that would (hopefully) greatly improve Bookmap's usability. Well, for me at least....
See what you think?

Hi Keab,

Thank you for the excellent feedback -- the video is really helpful. I will forward this to the team and also speak directly with our CTO regarding your suggestions and comments. Yes, I agree addressing these issues would certainly improve Bookmap functionality! Thanks again.

Hi Keab,

Our records indicate you are using Bookmap 5.0. There is a new feature in Bookmap 6.0 beta, where you can quickly adjust the Contrast Configuration black cut-off directly from the toolbar. Watch this video here.

Please consider trying the 6.0 beta version to see if this new feature does the trick for you. Log into bookmap.com and under the Getting Started tab you will see the link to download Bookmap 6.0 beta. I hope it helps.

regards,

Bruce

Hi Bruce,
That's exactly the sort of thing I'm after except I din't use the black cut off, it's the large size highlight that I constantly use.
If it's possible to have an option for the Black cut off, is it also possible to have an option to also display the large size highlight scale?

Regards,
Keab

Hi Keab,

I will document your Large Size Highlight suggestion for the team. In the meantime, try playing around with the Black Cut-off a bit. It might help clarify many heatmap configuration scenarios.

Will do, thanks
Any luck on getting 2 charts up at the same time with the same instrument?

Hi Bruce,

I'm sure something like this has been suggested before, however, could I suggest that a Contrast "Finetune-Cut-Off" configuration is added( where you can custom select the color). This way you could set for example a 99 cut off, and see the largest areas where the book has stacked up. This might not work so well for futures, but for equities, it's more common for there to be a large dispersion( range) in resting orders from the Median order size- So implementing a normalization algorithm becomes more difficult. An additional contrast setting could be the best way to deal with this.

FYI 6.1 B35 is a good improvement in performance.

"Free markets work because they allow people to be lucky, thanks to aggressive trial and error, not by giving rewards or incentives for skill. The strategy is, then, to tinker as much as possible and try to collect as many Black Swan opportunities as you can"
