First post.

I'd respectfully request...



4. allow DOM window to be resized vertically without squashing the price scale. Maybe I just have not found the scale setting for this yet.


Otherwise, SC is a beast. In a good way. It is truly amazing what you can configure.

The Trade DOM is just another chart as far as SC software is concerned, so you can do all the same chart scaling features on the Trade DOM that you can on a normal chart.

To start, just right click on the price scale inside the Trade DOM and away you go. What u want to do can definitely be done via those options.

I'm pretty sure the correct settings exist, I just have not found the right combo yet. Basically, I want the graphics within the DOM window to remain independent of the size and shape of the window. Exactly like when you resize a spreadsheet window vertically - the rows remain the same height.

Click-edit cells in the labels column is more important to me.

I'm not so sure it is possible. If a SC DOM is a chart, and a chart doesn't have scaling setting that allow the time scale to disappear from view as you shrink the vertical height of the window, then it is not possible on the DOM.

You can. But I think you may have mis-interpreted my post.

don't want to hide the time scale. I want my DOM to not behave like a chart wrt window vertical size.

Quoting 
4. allow DOM window to be resized vertically without squashing the price scale.

1. Resize the window as you require.
2. Right-click in the price scale, and select 'Auto Scale the ChartDOM'.

I've been using that method. Not quite what I am after, but the closest method. Thank you
